The School’s research activities concentrate on the principal areas of social and environmental accountability, accounting education, corporate governance and auditing.
Staff direct their research efforts to attracting competitive and external research funds, publishing in quality journals and presenting and workshopping papers at domestic and international conferences.
Apart from the research within the above areas, staff within the School also regularly author textbooks that are leaders within their respective fields.
In recent times the School has undertaken efforts to attract quality research students. The results of this effort have led to a number of students enrolled in both our Research Masters degree and our PhD program.
