Accounting and Finance

An interdisciplinary research community exploring an extensive range of accounting and finance themes.

About our research community

The Accounting and Finance research community is comprised of two main disciplinary pillars, Accounting and Finance, each covering the broad spectrum of the respective discipline. The two main disciplinary pillars also provide the basis for further cross-cutting interdisciplinary research, both across the Accounting and Finance disciplines and more widely.

The broad research areas addressed in each disciplinary pillar are highlighted below, with further details to be found by exploring the specific themes below.
