By Falconer Mitchell, Full Professor at the University of Edinburgh Business School
27-09-2016 from 13h00 to 14h00
The presentation will examine how pragmatic constructivism could be used as a framework for empirical research and conceptual development in management accounting. Pragmatic constructivism is a philosophy of how people relate to the real world in order to act successfully. Consequently it can be applied to professional practice (action) such as accounting.
