Faculty & Research
Accounting research covers a broad range of topics where the uniting factor is the discipline of accounting. Accounting produces, assesses, analyzes and employs financial and non-financial information that internal and external stakeholders of economic organizations find useful in making decisions. Stakeholder decisions employing accounting information range from the traditional (investing, budgeting, government policy and regulations, taxation, functioning of capital markets) to the socially relevant (managers’ ethics, corporate governance, environmental and social responsibilities, fairness of financial statements, and behavioural facets of decisions). The Accounting Area’s research spans all of these aspects and from various accounting perspectives including financial, managerial, auditing and tax.
Faculty members’ research interests include:
