Our Accounting research looks at the relationship between the accounting profession, governance and society and explores the nature and purpose of accounting institutions and practices, with a view to improving social well-being and stimulating greater accountability.
A key part of this is our Accounting Research Centre (ARC) which explores these areas of interest from a variety of perspectives, including Arab and Islamic contexts, historical analysis, gender issues, public sector contexts and interdisciplinary approaches.
ARC's work covers a diverse range of research linked by the common thread of the continuing and significantly growing influential role that accounting plays in the functioning of modern society.
Normally 3 years.
Accounting research is based around the following four broad areas:
- The Accounting Profession
- Governance and Society
We welcome enquiries and applications from suitably qualified candidates for PhD studies in these areas.
