Finance, Accounting and Economics
Research in Finance, Accounting and Economics generates insight into the economic impact of changes in real and financial markets, in financial reporting, and in society as a whole.
We undertake research in mainstream finance and accounting (eg. capital structure; the diffusion of innovations in accounting practices). Our research also forges interdisciplinary links with economics, law, social science, health and well-being, and considers the social impact of the discipline on a wide range of organisations nationally and globally.
Research students here are able to access a number of research resources including Bankscope, DataStream, EIU, FAME, ORSIS, and Wind Financial Terminal.
Our research infrastructure and facilities have ensured a flourishing research culture, which sparks developments that continue to have a significant impact and attracts PhD students of high standard from the UK and around the world.
