Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course comprises an overview on several issues of the enforcement of financial reporting in selected accounting regimes (i.e. Germany, Austria, UK and USA). It provides balanced coverage of the motivation and theoretically well-grounded demand for enforcement embedded in the different accounting systems, the description of various types of enforcement institutions, and international coordination activities. In addition, the course sheds some light on selected accounting issues which are frequently reviewed within the scope of enforcement investigations and thereby provides a link between accounting and enforcement systems.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

In order to obtain credits for the course, students need to give a conclusive team presentation on accounting issues provided by the lecturer. This team presentation will provide 100% of the final grade. Since the language of instruction in this course is English, the student team presentations also take place in English language.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The course's objective is to provide students with a sound understanding of the mechanisms of enforcement, which is a highly topical issue both in theory and practice of financial reporting. Key assessment criteria for the presentation are structural quality, formal requirements, the problem-solving approach, and the results of problem solving.

Prüfungsstoff

The lecture is supplemented by presentations from students who present research on selected enforcement aspects, e.g. empirical studies on the efficacy of enforcement.
