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.
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 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.
