Management accounting

The provision of accounting information is used to assist in decision making, allowing organisations to better manage and perform control functions.

The research strength of our management accounting researchers lies in our focus on control systems in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.  Our researchers investigate the role and effectiveness of control system design. This encompasses areas such as performance management, both financial and non-financial, as well as incentive system design.

Diversity of research methods

A further strength in the area of management accounting lies in our diversity of research methods on research questions. Our expertise ranges from experimental design to surveys and case studies.
This not only provides tremendous opportunities in the types of questions our researchers are able to answer, but also strengthens our ability to investigate the same area of interest from multiple angles.
