Our experts welcome applications from postgraduate students interested in higher degree research across a broad range of topics.
Accounting research examines how accounting information is identified, measured, valued, and disclosed. Accounting research also examines how stakeholders use accounting information, the regulatory environment in which the accounting profession operates, the effects of standard setting bodies, and the judgment and decision making of accounting professionals and other organisational stakeholders.
