The Accounting and Finance seminar series provides a platform to share cutting-edge and leading research in finance and accounting.



The Accounting and Finance seminar series offers a great opportunity to exchange ideas with academics at the University of Edinburgh and other universities around the world.

Renowned scholars are invited from around the world to share their research findings with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh and neighbouring universities in Scotland. We also welcome presentations from early and mid-career researchers. Colleagues from other universities are encouraged to attend our seminar events.
