Regional Workshop Series | LSU Department of Accounting


Regional Workshop Series

Since 2008, the LSU Department of Accounting has hosted an annual Regional Workshop Series, in addition to our regular research workshop series. The Regional Workshop has invited well known accounting academics who have produced seminal work, or had editorial appointments to major journals. The format of the workshop consisted of a morning research session for PhD students and interested faculty, followed by a luncheon. In the afternoon, a working paper workshop was followed by a reception. Schools nearby LSU were invited to attend the one day event including Tulane, Louisiana Tech University, Southern University, University of Alabama – Tuscaloosa, Mississippi State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, University of New Orleans, Loyola University – New Orleans, as well as faculty and PhD students from other departments in the E. J. Ourso College of Business.

The Regional Workshop Series takes place at the Business Education Complex in room 1220.
