Accounting and Financial Management

An excellent reputation for research

We have an excellent reputation for research and recent projects have received funding for ICAEW and from CIMA. Our researchers are currently exploring financial reporting, audit, corporate governance and strategic management accounting. We have a number of staff members researching aspects of accounting education. The group has a growing reputation in the field of forensic accounting, working alongside the University’s Institute for Criminal Justice Studies so that students are able to study an MSc in Forensic Accounting.

Research in the subject group has included; key issues that impact on audit quality and financial reporting integrity, such as the role of audit committees and audit committee chairs in decision making, and the joint provision of audit and non-audit services. Other areas include research on how management accounting in the UK agricultural industry informs policymakers and promotion fair returns for all in the food supply chain.
