Welcome to Talent Workshop

The European Accounting Association is launching the second edition of its job market for accounting academics –Talent Workshop. The event will be held in Madrid, November 4-5, 2016 and it will be hosted by IE Business School.

We welcome institutions of higher learning searching for junior faculty as well PhDs that have completed their degree or will to do it in the foreseeable future. The Talent Workshop will provide a venue where candidates can present their work as well as hold interviews with recruiters.



Building Bridges Between Young Talent and Academic Institutions.

Institutions of higher learning witness increasing mobility of PhD students and faculty. In addition to short-term initiatives aimed at providing placement for PhD students and faculty for one semester and/or an academic year, an increasing number of universities and business schools enforce non-inbreeding policies on their PhD students. In turn, the wide implementation of these policies has brought about significant increases in the long-term mobility rate of faculty across countries and regions.

Although the Internet provides a helpful venue to advertise opening positions as well as expressions of interest, there is still room for improvement. Combining the strengths of the web and face-to-face initiatives, the Management Committee of the EAA agreed to launch a job market, a Talent Workshop, for accounting academics.
