This unit aims to add breadth and depth to students' appreciation of both (a) the range of topics encompassed within contemporary accounting research and (b) the range of research methods and methodologies used by Accounting researchers. It does so by training students to critically evaluate advanced research on topic areas such as financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, information systems and data management, intellectual capital, accountability, the interaction of accounting with capital markets (including earnings management and use of accounting numbers in financial analysis), public sector accounting and management, and critical accounting research.
