Event Description

Modern Trends in Accounting Research “Forward-looking Disclosures”

Over the years accounting research has witnessed many changes which started with accounting researchers attempting to frame the practices by professionals which led to accounting theories, accounting principles, and standards. After the industrial revolution, especially after the separation between management and owners which lead to the development of the agency theory, accounting researchers focused on managerial issues to control costs and analyze the conflict of interests between owners and managers. Nowadays, with the emergence of the digitalization and the fourth industrial revolution, accounting is bound to keep pace with these changes, in order to strengthen its position as one of the leading professions in the economy.

To shed light on the most important modern trends in accounting research, the Accounting and Economics Department at Ahlia University is pleased to invite you to attend a webinar “Modern Trends in Accounting Research: Forward-looking Disclosures” by one of the most well-known accounting professors in the world and a pioneer of modern accounting research, Professor Dr Khaled Hussainey, Professor of Accounting and Financial Management at the University of Portsmouth – UK.
