Workshop: Research in Ethics and Accounting

The "Research in Ethics & Accounting Workshop" is a joint initiative of the Friede Springer Chair of Business Ethics and Management Accounting (Philipp Schreck) and the Chair of Economic Ethics (Ingo Pies). About 2-3 times a year we invite internationally renowned researchers to present their work in Halle or Wittenberg, in order to facilitate scientific exchange in management accounting as well as business- and economic ethics. Furthermore, faculty members have the possibility of individual conversations with the speakers.

We are looking forward to see many colleagues, doctoral candidates, and professors. Registration is not necessary. Shortly before the talks, details such as presentation title and abstract are provided by email and on this page.

Philipp Schreck is the contact person for this workshop series ().

We are looking forward to interesting talks by the following colleagues:
