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:

  • Accounting information and capital markets
  • Managerial accounting for decision making
  • International accounting
  • Accounting theory
  • Auditing
  • Accounting ethics
  • Behavioral implications of accounting
  • Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Faculty research is supported by the professional accounting bodies and other agencies. Most of the accounting faculty hold professional designations in addition to their academic degrees.
