2012-2013 Accounting Seminars

The Accounting Division seminar series consists of weekly presentations by eminent academics, prospective faculty members and the division’s own faculty members. Unless otherwise noted, Fall 2012 seminars are held on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. in 307 Uris. In most years, early spring semester seminars are recruiting sessions featuring candidates for faculty positions.

In addition, the division invites distinguished scholars to our annual Burton Workshop.
