For students who have received a topic to work on within the topic assignment and have not written a seminar paper at the Institute of Accounting and Auditing, it is mandatory to participate in the subsequent “Introduction into scientific work”. To avoid study delay, preferably advanced students are given a seminar topic. Furthermore, participation in one of the two tutorials is mandatory for those students who write their first seminar paper at the Institute for Accounting and Auditing.
Each student who writes a seminar paper should at least meet their supervisor once for a discussion of the outline of the paper. The supervisors are also available by appointment for further questions on the seminar paper.
In addition to at least sufficient grade (4.0) in the seminar paper and the presentation, attending the lecture as well as active participation in the discussions of other seminar topics condition are mandatory
When writing a seminar paper the formal requirements for writing papers and theses of the Institute for Accounting and Auditing are to be considered. The students can receive them by e-mail or find them on the website of the Institute.
