Southampton University Live Stream Seminar: Accounting, Finance, Governance and Development in the 21st Century

Course Summary

Each month, Southampton Business School runs an evening seminar at their campus in Southampton with a speaker from academia or industry. This evening seminar is on the topic of Accounting, Finance, Governance and Development in the 21st Century. It will be live streamed to the GTA training centre and is free to attend. Refreshments will be available.

The speaker, Professor Collins Ntim, will re-enforce the centrality of accounting. Not just in facilitating day-to-day transactions, but also its ability to drive development, especially economic development. He will seek to draw attention to the destructive power and/or potential of accounting, with accounting often strongly implicated in facilitating negative practices, such as corruption, tax avoidance, global economic and financial crises, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, terrorism and other exploitative labour practices. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of, and need for, responsible accounting in the 21st century.

Following the live stream seminar a local guest speaker will chair a discussion on the topic at a local level.
