Research at School of Accounting, Economics and Finance

The School benefits from a wide range of research areas, each of them informed by world-class scholars highly regarded for their contributions to knowledge. We believe ardently that our students – no matter at what level – need in-depth exposure to the very best theories, ideas, and practical applications produced in research and scholarship. For that reason, all of our courses assimilate state-of-the-art research ideas and outcomes into the curriculum.

At the PhD level, we provide the training and research abilities necessary for our graduates to find positions in leading university and world-class policy and research institutions. Recent graduates from all of our programs are pursuing research-intensive careers with organisations such as the Treasury, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Bureau of Agricultural Economics, all of the major public accounting firms, Department of Finance, Reserve Bank of Australia and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
