The accounting group is energetic and continuously strives for excellence in teaching and its scholarship. The group's research strengths range from accounting change to accounting education, and from performance measurement to financial accounting, using both quantitative and qualitative research techniques. The group has a particular interest in public sector and not-for-profit organisations. Aside from gaining close research advice and direction from their supervisors and other academics in the group, research students benefit from attending courses and tailor-made reading groups to complete their background preparation in accounting. Queen's Management School prides itself on research-led teaching and offers its research students experience as teaching assistants in a variety of undergraduate courses. Students regularly attend the School's various seminar series, which attract leading academics from around the world. Students also present their work at these events, gaining invaluable advice and preparation for the academic job market.
