Mission statement:

Our mission is to conduct high-quality research on a broad range of accounting topics, relevant to practice and with a high impact on society.

We want to achieve this by:

  • Creating an inspiring, effective and collaborative working environment for faculty and PhD-students;
  • Establishing a well-respected position in the international research community;
  • Offering relevant recommendations to practitioners and policy makers, based on thoroughly-executed empirical research;
  • Building and sharing knowledge with students and develop the next generation of managers.

Our vision:

We strive to become a Centre of Excellence for academic research on contemporary accounting topics.

Our goal is to be a highly-recognized research group for academically and socially-relevant empirical research in the selected research areas.

We want to address the problems and complex challenges that the business community and public policy makers are confronted with.

Our strategy:

Our research focuses on the following broad areas:

  • Management accounting
  • Public sector and non-profit sector accounting
  • Corporate reporting and auditing
  • Accounting education
  • Performance evaluation

A common characteristic of our research is that the origin of the research themes typically has a grounding in real-world practice or the institutional environment as it surrounds us and is of an empirical nature.

Our strategy is to couple practical real-world relevance with international academic aspirations by studying policy-relevant and real-world themes based on sound theoretical frameworks and advanced research methods.
