Prior to his present appointment as Professor in accounting, Warwick held the position of Associate Professor in the Department.
He has taught at other universities in England and operated his own business. Warwick's teaching has been primarily in management accounting, introductory accounting, public sector accounting and the history of accounting thought.
Currently he teaches management accounting and contributes to the post-graduate teaching program and research student supervision. He also conducts classes in public sector accounting and financial management for the Faculty of Law as part of its Courts Policy and Administration Program. Much of Warwick's research has focussed on the evolution and practice of public sector accounting and financial management and more recently in accounting historiography.
His work has enabled him to continue his interest in the development of public sector auditing. His recently published book on public sector financial management is destined to be a landmark in the area in this country.
Warwick is the Co-ordinator of the Department's management accounting subjects.
In 1998 Warwick was awarded the Mary Follett Parker Prize for the best paper published by the journal Accounting, Auditing and Accountability.
