PhD defence: Jonas Sveistrup Søgaard

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Jonas Sveistrup Søgaard has submitted his thesis entitled: Designs for Accounting Information Systems using Distributed Ledger Technology

Tirsdag, 23 november, 2021 - 17:00 to 19:00


Distributed ledger technology (DLT), or more widely known blockchain technology, has often been associated with cryptocurrencies. However, the underlining technology has many more applications. Therefore, Jonas seeks to provide designs for accounting information systems using DLT through a design science research approach that academics and practitioners can use and extend. The thesis presents designs focusing on the instant settlement of value-added tax, performance evaluation frameworks, and theoretically designs for a new way of doing business.
