We invite excellent students to apply for our doctoral program DART which specializes in the area of accounting, reporting, and taxation with a focus on economics-based research, applying quantitative research methods and modeling. It is a cooperation between three major Austrian Universities, located in Graz and in Vienna. The program is fully taught in English and covers all major fields of accounting: financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, taxation, and corporate governance. DART offers a stimulating learning and research environment and provides financial support to outstanding students from around the world who seek a career in leading academic institutions.
DART - PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The program offers research opportunities particularly in the following concurrent areas in accounting:
Financial reporting quality
Auditor regulation and audit quality
Accounting and corporate governance
Taxation and incentives
Managerial performance measurement
Students admitted to DART enroll with the appropriate formal doctoral program at one of the three participating universities. At the beginning of each program, students attend an intensive set of core courses, such as analytical and empirical methods, applied to accounting, finance, and economics. The required courses also include mathematics and statistics, and economic modeling. Advanced courses are electives that students select depending on their specialization. Research seminars are held by local faculty, comprising leading accounting researchers in Austria, and by international visiting faculty such as Tim Baldenius, Wayne Landsman, Volker Laux, Christian Leuz, Catherine Schrand, Stefan Reichelstein and Robert Verrecchia. The courses provide students with the necessary knowledge and capabilities to engage in their own research. After the course phase, students enter their thesis-writing phase. They benefit from a strong interaction with the faculty and their thesis advisors. By attending research workshops, they meet internationally renowned scholars presenting their concurrent research projects.
