Accounting research

Explore the research we're doing across our 4 areas of expertise in Accounting 

Accounting plays an integral role in the stability and development of economies and financial markets all over the world. Without proper management and oversight of financial resources, further financial crises – such as those seen in recent decades – are a real possibility. Accounting also has social and environmental impacts that go beyond economies and markets, affecting day-to-day lives and long-term sustainability of people and planet.

Our Accounting research focuses on 4 interconnected, collaborative and multidisciplinary areas of expertise. Within each topic, we're transforming our knowledge and expertise into action, and demonstrating the importance of a thriving accounting profession.
