The Word Cloud around RESEARCH is based on titles of research articles published by School of Accounting and Finance faculty during the period 2013-2018.

The breadth of our research is extensive with faculty collectively examining a multitude of issues related to asset pricing, corporate finance, assurance, financial reporting, tax, information systems, management control systems, law, governance and ethics.
Faculty also utilize the full-range of research methods including theoretical modeling, simulations, archival analysis, field and lab experiments, surveys and interviews. As a consequence of the emphasis on diversity, our research is relevant to a broad audience including standard setters, regulators, accounting and finance professionals in practice, and policy makers.
