The School of Accounting & Finance has developed research strengths in a number of areas. Our Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program is the largest of all accounting departments in Australia. The School is regarded as one of the top institutions for alternative research frameworks, and application of information technology to the learning and management of teaching. Alternative research frameworks examine accounting in its broader political, economic and social framework. Such research goes well beyond the traditional technical focus of accounting and finance.
Staff have research interests in the technical and regulatory considerations of accounting & finance. The School has databases and other facilities to support this research.
