Leerdoelen The paper should cover a small piece of research in the knowledge area of Accountancy & Controlling and the project must be conducted and reported on according to scientific standards.

Upon completion of the course the student should able to:
1.Review the literature to identify a knowledge gap and ask a relevant research question;
2.Develop propositions and/or hypotheses supported by a strong argumentation;
3.Make consistent research design choices and justify these choices;
4.Collect data and apply appropriate analytical techniques;
5.Review critically a peer’s work and provide constructive feedback.
Omschrijving A research paper is the last step of a long journey starting with a puzzle the researcher has identified. It communicates as clearly as possible the motivation, methods, and results of an investigation designed and implemented to answer a research question. Now, for the sake of clarity, little of the actual research experience is eventually reported in the paper. The purpose of this course is therefore to give students a complete although simplified experience of research practice, from the initial questioning to the final paper.
