Accounting and Finance Research

Our interdisciplinary subject group explores an extensive range of accounting and finance themes.

The Accounting and Finance subject group comprises two main disciplinary pillars: Accounting and Finance.

Each pillar covers the broad spectrum of the respective discipline.

The two main disciplinary pillars provide the basis for further cross-cutting interdisciplinary research. This is carried out across the Accounting and Finance disciplines and more widely.

The broad research areas addressed in each disciplinary pillar are highlighted below. Further details can be found by exploring the specific themes.
