As a doctoral student, you will have access and exposure to the best in class resources available to academic accounting researchers.
Doctoral students focusing on archival research have access to the University of Arizona’s data subscriptions with the Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS®). WRDS provides its users with one location to access data across multiple disciplines. This significant data investment allows our doctoral students the opportunity to empirically examine accounting questions that include, but are not limited to, the following topics: Auditing, Corporate Governance, Executive Compensation, Financial Accounting, and Tax.
Doctoral students seeking rigorous training in experimental data analysis team with our accounting faculty and doctoral students in the Economic Science Laboratory (ESL). The ESL is the home for cutting-edge experimental business research at the Eller College of Management. Much of the research that earned Vernon Smith the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences was conducted at the University of Arizona between 1976 and 2002.
