The Research School in Accounting - FIRE
AT A GLANCE
The research school in accounting, FIRE (Forskarskolan i redovisning) was founded by Stockholm School of Economics together with Uppsala university, Stockholm University and Gothenburg University in in order to stimulate the development of accounting as an academic field.
FIRE is funded by Jan Wallander & Tom Hedelius’ Foundations and Torsten Söderberg’s Foundation.
Being a member in the Research School in Accounting will help the PhD students in their journey towards a PhD. As a PhD student within the research school you will create a network of PhD students and their supervisors that will be a natural part of the PhD process.
ACTIVITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE
FIRE arranges two conferences for participants in the research school each year.
In these settings PhD students will be able to present their research in a safe and constructive environment. Senior faculty from the different universities and business school participate and give comments and suggestions to improve the research.
In today’s academic system we understand the importance of preparing for a life after the PhD and this is something that we will address during the conferences.
FIRE offer its participants access to three uniquely designed PhD courses in accounting. Top class researchers, both foreign and Swedish, will act as teachers.
