Accounting and Finance Research Group

Unit(s) of assessment: Business and Management Studies

Research theme: Safety and Security of Citizens and Society

School: Nottingham Business School


The Accounting and Finance research group aims to develop and deliver research across the accounting and finance disciplines that results in new academic insight, supports academic and  professional scholarship and influences policy, as well as professional and organisational practice.

More specifically, the objectives of this group are to:

  1. Develop and enhance the individual and collective research capacity of the group’s members;
  2. Create an internationally recognised research group that facilitates national and international research that influences policy and professional and organisational practice;
  3. Develop the future generation of researchers in accounting and finance; and
  4. Maintain active links, nationally and internationally, with academic and practice based communities other research centres and academic institutions as well as former doctorate students.

Units within the group have coalesced around five broad core themes that represent the accounting and finance discipline, namely:

  • Financial Accounting and Reporting
  • Management Accounting
  • Accountability and Governance
  • Finance
  • Learning, Teaching and Pedagogy

Faculty align to one or other units within the Accounting and Finance Group to promote subject specialisms, but also work with colleagues across units on specific projects.  Similarly, faculty will work with colleagues in other groups within the University on cross discipline research.

The activities of the Group assist and inform excellence in teaching of the related subjects across the undergraduate and post graduate courses within the school.
