Faculty Research Workshops 2016-2017

The Accounting Department continues to host our research workshops as part of our commitment to support faculty research. We invite nationally and internationally recognized scholars to present their research works at Santa Clara University. These workshops provide opportunities for SCU faculty to interact with leading-edge scholars in the field and to present their own early-stage research to solicit valuable feedback.
