  • Human-Interaction-based Information and Managerial Learning from Stock Prices: Evidence from the COVID-19 Pandemic  Park, Seyoung ( University of Oregon , 2024-01-10 ) Despite growing evidence managers learn information from stock prices that guide their investment decisions, the forms of information that underlie this learning mechanism are not well understood. This paper explores whether ...
  • The Effect of SEC Staff Diversity on Investigation Decisions  Gabrielsen, Lance ( University of Oregon , 2024-01-09 ) I explore how ethnic and gender diversity at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) affects its investigation decisions. Employing a novel dataset of SEC employees, I find a positive association between SEC office-level ...
  • Ultimate Beneficial Ownership Disclosure Regulation and the Real effects of Investment: A Cross-Country Analysis  Berry, Erica ( University of Oregon , 2023-03-24 ) In this study, I examine whether laws mandating disclosure of ultimate beneficial ownership of entities influence outbound foreign direct investment activities. The secrecy provided by anonymous companies allows the ...
  • Do Private Tax Disclosures Affect the Quality of Public Financial Reporting?  Wu, Juan ( University of Oregon , 2022-10-04 ) This study investigates whether increased private tax disclosures have implications for the quality of public financial reporting in the context of Schedule UTP. In terms of the predictive value of tax reserves, I find ...
  • Do Financial Analysts Influence Employee Treatment? Evidence from a Natural Experiment  Abdulsalam, Khaled ( University of Oregon , 2022-02-18 ) I examine the influence of financial analysts on firms’ treatment of employees.

  • Taxes and the Use of Subjectivity in Executive Bonus Plans  Fox, Zackery ( University of Oregon , 2021-09-13 ) In this study, I examine whether taxes influence the design of executive compensation incentives. Recently, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) removed the requirement that bonus plans be tied to objective and verifiable ...
  • Do Managers Respond to Tax Avoidance Incentives by Investing in the Tax Function? Evidence from Tax Departments  Li, Zhongyang (John) ( University of Oregon , 2021-04-27 ) While prior literature examines the role of incentives in motivating top managers to engage in corporate tax avoidance, there is little evidence on the specific actions that managers take in response to these incentives. ...
  • Are Critics Right About Quarterly Earnings Guidance? An Examination of Quarterly Earnings Guidance and Managerial Myopia  Quinto, Claire ( University of Oregon , 2020-09-24 ) I examine the claim that managers who issue quarterly earnings guidance sacrifice long-term value to enhance short-term performance, i.e., that quarterly earnings guidance encourages myopic behavior. I find that quarterly ...
  • Does the Diversification of Tax Strategies affect Tax Risk?  Krieg, Kimberly ( University of Oregon , 2019-09-18 ) I investigate the effect that the number of different tax strategies employed by a public company has on the relation between measures of corporate tax avoidance and measures of risk. Prior studies have generally failed ...
  • The Interaction of Incentive and Opportunity in Corporate Tax Avoidance: Evidence from Financially Constrained Firms  Wu, Kaishu ( University of Oregon , 2018-09-06 ) I hypothesize and find that the variation in corporate tax avoidance is jointly determined by firms’ incentive and opportunities to avoid taxes. Specifically, the positive relation between financial constraints (my proxy ...
  • Individual Executive Characteristics and Firm Performance: Evidence from CEO Narcissism  Perez, Rebeca ( University of Oregon , 2017-09-06 ) Narcissism refers to persistent feelings of grandiosity, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy (American Psychiatric Association 2013). The literature has found narcissism to be associated with individuals making ...
  • How does the stock market respond to R&D cuts used to manage earnings?  Li, Zhaochu ( University of Oregon , 2016-10-27 ) Prior research shows returns are positive when firms meet or beat analysts’ consensus forecasts but negative when firms miss. Past studies also show managers frequently cut R&D expenses in order to meet the ...
  • Financial Accounting Standards, Audit Profession Development, and Firm-Level Tax Evasion  Williams, Brian ( University of Oregon , 2016-02-23 ) In this study I investigate the relation between (1) country-level financial accounting standards and audit profession development and (2) firm-level tax evasion.

  • Top Management Team Functional Diversity and Management Forecast Accuracy  Wang, Shan ( University of Oregon , 2015-08-18 ) Prior literature documents that the diversity of top management team (TMT) functional experiences enhances firm performance through its effect on information processing and sharing between team members. In this study, I ...
  • Private Litigation as a Regulator of Accounting Standards  Cutler, Joshua ( University of Oregon , 2015-08-18 ) I examine the impact of the trend of private class actions targeting alleged violations of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

  • The Role of Taxes in Foreign Earnings Management: Implications for Pricing of Foreign Earnings  Huang, Jingjing ( University of Oregon , 2014-09-29 ) U.S. multinational corporations are well known for shifting income to low tax foreign subsidiaries to avoid U.S. income tax. Yet little is known about how multinational corporations opportunistically use low tax foreign ...
  • Do Financial Expert Directors Affect the Incidence of Accruals Management to Meet or Beat Analyst Forecasts?  Hsu, Pei Hui ( University of Oregon , 2013-10-03 ) Evidence that firms adjust accruals to just meet or beat analyst forecasts is pervasive.

  • The Effect of Managerial Reputation on Corporate Tax Avoidance  Kim, Jin Wook ( University of Oregon , 2012 ) Prior literature suggests that tax avoidance is an effective way to enhance firm value. However, there appears to be considerable cross-sectional variation in tax avoidance, and it is not clear why some firms do not take ...
  • Why Do Acquirers Manage Earnings Before Stock-for-Stock Acquisitions?  Tran, Nam D. ( University of Oregon , 2011-06 ) In this dissertation, I examine whether high disclosure costs explain why acquirers manage earnings before stock-for-stock acquisitions.

Accounting as a profession has always been seen as a very skill based and respectable. Owing to the nature of the profession, it is highly based on trust and ethical code of conduct which ultimately leads to better financial reporting and decision making by the management. The increasing number of scandals in recent times has raised several questions regarding ethical practices in accounting. The issue not only requires further studies to understand the existing practices and the scope of improvement, but also a culture of adapting the ethical practices within the organisations serving citizens of the nations. Ethics is quite an important subject in modern society and would be a good idea for your finance dissertation topic. Some illustrative topics for your dissertation could be:

Microfinance attracts significant attention from individuals, small to large international development organizations and non-governmental organisations. Efforts have been made to increase growth in microfinance throughout the banking and corporate sector. These topics investigate the ways in which microfinance institutions have revolutionised the financial sector in the United Kingdom.

Although their relative importance is on the decline, retail and commercial banks are still the most important financial intermediaries in the banking industry. Both the retail and commercial banks have played a crucial role in reaching rural and semi-urban populations and provided much needed financial services to the mass population. These topics seek to understand how the banking sector has changed over time to accommodate the dynamic financial demands and further highlight the impacts of banking on various economic segments.

With stronger fundamentals and better scope for investments, the financial prospects in emerging markets such as Russia, China, India, and Brazil have increased significantly in recent times.

Volatility in the financial markets is prompting more and more investors to buy up alternative investments such as mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity and SEIS/EIS funds. Recent studies have confirmed the fact that increasing numbers of investors are opting to buy into the sector due to its huge return and comparatively less volatile nature of market. However, it is equally important to understand that alternative investment options typically do not correlate to the stock market, and thus are more complex than traditional investment vehicles.

  • The growth of hedge funds: The reasons for a sustained progress and its effects on the UK investments market.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Banking Industry Dissertation Topics

The banking industry throws up an interesting conundrum. Unlike the manufacturing industries, it does not cause detrimental effects such as pollution, however, the financial sector impacts almost everyone in the modern world in terms of financial stability. Given that banks are responsible for managing money of depositors, this has wide socio-economic implications for the society through the way they conduct their financial products and services. Therefore, corporate social responsibility becomes an integral part of corporate management strategy in banking industry. Although the key objective of a banking sector is to earn maximum profits for shareholders or owners, it is expected that they conduct their operations in a manner to fulfil their social obligations towards society.

Topics of Corporate Social Responsibility of the banking industry that may be used for a finance dissertation are:

  • The importance and significance of Corporate Social Responsibility for investment banks in the UK.
  • Recent developments in CSR activities by the banking industry participants in the UK.
  • A case study of socially responsible banking.

  • CSR is now less a choice and more of a necessity for businesses to flourish.
  • CSR has become a commercial imperative, a differentiator for the city and analysts to judge the progressive nature of an organisation.
  • Guidance and reporting on a wide range of CSR issues in banking industry.
  • CSR in banking industry during subprime mortgage crisis: What went wrong?

With the growing importance of maintaining a standard approach in accounting practices across EU nations and other countries of the world, the emerging accounting standards have raised a number of questions on existing practices across various organisations. It is interesting to see how these emerging standards get adopted by various organisations across the world. Several ideas for your finance dissertation topics could be:

  • Does the current set of accounting standards live up to its objectives?
  • International accounting standards: What is convergence and whether there is any likelihood of convergence between the EU and the US?
  • An investigation into outsourcing accounting overseas from the US perspective.
  • An investigation into outsourcing accounting overseas from the UK perspective.
  • The balanced scorecard: “The Holy Grail” for legal firms?
  • Reporting on sustainability: what is the standard?
  • The increasing demand for disclosure of social and environmental information: Implications for big organisations.
  • To what extent does social reporting represent a genuine attempt to promote sustainability, versus a cynical marketing ploy?
  • How have amendments to the Companies Act and Corporate Governance Code affected the role and responsibilities of UK accountants over the past decade?
  • An analysis of the potential impacts of Brexit on the accounting standards and regime in the UK.
  • In the wake of the financial crisis, should fair value remain the primary basis of measurement in global accounting standards?

The awareness of accounting practices is an important issue being dealt with in organisations around the world. The perception around the accounting practices and various biases needs to be investigated and controlled to make the practices more dynamic and responsible for society in general. Accounting topics for your finance dissertation are suggested below:

To what extent does contemporary accounting education provide new accountants with the skills and attitudes they require?

  • Accounting education: A comparison of EU and UK organisations.
  • Accounting education: A comparison of Asian and European organisations.
  • Accounting education: Does ethics get enough attention?
  • Investigating the effects of gender on women’s experiences with the accounting profession in the UK.
  • Accounting as art: Representation, truth, and annual reports.

THE CHALLENGES AFFECTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF ISLAMIC MICRO FINANCING IN UGANDA A CASE STUDY OF ISLAMIC MICROFINANCE INSTITUTIONS IN KAMPALA

mikidad ratib

Microfinance is the provision of savings accounts, loans, insurance, money transfers and other banking services to customers that lack access to traditional financial services, usually because of poverty. Microfinance can also be defined as a type of banking service that is provided to unemployed or low-income individuals or groups who otherwise would have no other access to financial services. It is in some instances also called microcredit. Microfinance plays an important role in creating financial access needs in the undesirable sections of the economy and society. It helps lift masses out of poverty by providing small loans to those lacking access to traditional financial services or funding opportunities, develop small businesses that can then provide regular income, and they provide financial resources to underserved markets. As such, microfinance is an important tool not just to minimize the impacts of poverty, but also to promote house hold income and livelihoods. However micro financing has generally not been well developed and established on the global, regional and national level. Relating to Islamic micro financing, it too suffers the same issues in its development and establishment on all levels.

under Tier IVfinancial system (Finance Act 2002) as an NGO primarily to enhance access to financialservices by the majority of poor Ugandans, especially women who have generally beenleft out by the mainstream financial system in the country. The program design focuseson poverty alleviation through provision of credit at an affordable cost, convenience, nocollateral or pre-saving requirement, plus provision of capacity building to clients toenhance planned for income generation activities.In the span of only two years, the microfinance program has a network outreach of 46 branch offices in 24 districts across the four (East, central, West, North) geographicalregions of Uganda. The program offers two micro credit products:Micro group lending:-1,932 member groups formed with 55472 clients. Total loandisbursed is US $ 11,727.153 to 39,888 clients at 20% annual interest rate. No collateralor pre-saving required, and services delivery at client doorstep. Success and sustainability of projects undertaken depends so much on monitoring and evaluation. Microfinance institutions have enabled increased access to credit for many individuals thus improving their livelihood. It is therefore important to understand the role of monitoring and evaluation which are essential tools that enhance the growth of microfinance institutions. The aim of the Central Bank of uganda is to see that the microfinance industry spreads out to the heart of rural homes in order to meet the needs of the unbanked through expanding access to financial services for poor individuals and families along with small businesses, especially the small, medium Scale and informal sector businesses. Such a goal also fulfills the ugadan Vision 2040 where the government aims to improve access to the financial sector and in doing so fulfill the millennium development goals. This research was conducted in Entebbe munisparity by analyzing responses got from employees and clients working in some of the leading microfinance institutions in the region. Data analysis was done to present the findings by employing statistical methods. It was found that monitoring and evaluation practices influences performance of MFIs schemes as was supported by 86.6% of the respondents. The research established that preventive monitoring and evaluation practices are not fully utilized by microfinance organizations and in addition that Information technology practices need to be incorporated when conducting monitoring and evaluation. Recommendations were made which included insuring flexibility in M&E practices that should be customer based and the use of sustainable screening techniques that enhance effective delivery of services. Moreover, training of employers and employees on customer's preferences and seeking professional assistance are essential tools for monitoring and evaluation.

Dissertation Topics in Finance- MBA, Banking, Accounting Projects-04 (1)

Also known as the study of investments, Finance is a combination of two interrelated subjects – how money is handled and the process of obtaining money. One of the reasons why postgraduate students struggle with their Finance dissertation topics is that they do not spend enough time planning it. It is important for students to be extremely careful while writing a finance dissertation as it contributes a lot to their respective degrees. This blog provides you with the best topics, a dissertation structure, and more. 

This Blog Includes:

What is a finance dissertation, why finance dissertation topics are important, tips to find excellent dissertation topics on finance, writing tips for finance dissertation, how to plan your work on a finance dissertation, how to structure a finance dissertation, finance dissertation general topics , topics related to india, mba dissertation topics, banking dissertation topics , accounting dissertation topics, research project example, final consideration and conclusion.

Finance dissertations, as the name implies, are pieces of writing that study a certain finance topic chosen by the student. The subjects covered include anything from the stock market to banking and risk management to healthcare finance. This dissertation gives the student academic self-assurance and personal happiness in the subject of finance. Finance writing necessitates substantial research in order to produce a compelling report.

The majority of students have no idea why finance dissertation themes are so crucial. However, put yourself in the shoes of your lecturer. You’ve already read hundreds of theses. The majority of them covered the same ground — issues that you’re already tired of hearing about. Then there’s a topic with a distinct, intriguing theme. Something that piques your interest and entices you to read more. Wouldn’t you give those pupils some extra credit? You’d do it! This is why there are so many fantastic finance dissertation topics. You can get extra points for your efforts. The topic of your paper might mean the difference between a good and a terrific grade.

It’s difficult to come up with anything unique and interesting. There are, nevertheless, ways to come up with interesting ideas. Here are a few pointers on how to locate them:

  • Read a fantastic finance dissertation and find for areas where further study is needed.
  • Go to the library and read a couple theses to get some ideas.
  • Inquire with a writing agency about some ideas from one of their professional dissertation writers.
  • In writing forums and blogs, ask for assistance. If you ask gently, people will give you some excellent suggestions.
  • Look for ideas on the internet, but don’t use them exactly as they are. Make them distinctive by changing them.
  • Talk to other students who are working on their dissertations and find out what other ideas they had before settling on the present topic.
  • Narrow down your topic : Your financial topic should be narrowed down to a certain niche. It should concentrate on a single area, such as microfinance, microfinance, or online banking.
  • Verify your facts: Finance is a topic that requires a great deal of logical analysis of statistical data. As a result, double-check facts and statistics using credible sources before using them in your paper.
  • Write concisely: You should condense a financial paper into a tight, succinct work, unlike other papers with extended narrative narratives. At this length, the adage of ‘short is sweet’ theoretically applies.
  • Arrange your data neatly: A report that is crammed with numbers and graphs may turn off a reader at first glance. Know how and when to utilise your data for a great financial thesis.
  • Write simply: Avoid using jargon that might be confusing to a non-technical reader. When technical terminology are required, utilise accessible examples to convey them. In a finance dissertation, simplicity is king. So make good use of it.

Dissertation submission is very important to obtain a PG Degree. You are supposed to submit the work by the end of your study course, so by the last year of your degree, you may have got enough ideas and problems dealing with finance. While starting with a finance dissertation topic you should always remember that the purpose of a Finance Dissertation is to demonstrate your research ability, how you analyze specific data and come up with a conclusion. Mentioned below is a step to step guide for you to start working with:

Step 1 : Choose a relevant and interesting topic for your research

Step 2 : Discuss and receive feedback from your supervisor

Step 3 : Finalise the research methods to prove the significance of the selected topic
