Research in Accounting and Finance
The research interests of the Accounting and Finance Group http://www.business-school.ed.ac.uk/research/clusters/accounting-finance connect with and inform theoretical and practitioner debates in the field. Our research culture is enhanced by a vibrant and integrated community of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, a seminar programme hosting leading academics, participation in international networks, and increasing links with practitioner communities. There is a strong interdisciplinary dimension to our work, involving collaboration with researchers within and beyond the group, the School, and the University.
