The Department of Accounting at Queen's Management School brings together expertise in accounting, accounting change, budgeting, governance, performance management and reporting in not-for-profit and public sector organisations.
Our supportive research environment fosters meaningful engagement with the non-academic world and facilitates the pursuit of high-quality publications. Our research has appeared in leading peer-reviewed scholarly journals including Abacus, Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal, Accounting Forum, British Accounting Review, Financial Accountability & Management, and the Journal of Business Ethics and Public Administration.
We provide excellent research-led teaching to undergraduates, postgraduates and working professionals, and our staff regularly consult with financial and policy-making institutions such as the UK and Republic of Ireland Governments and the Bank of England.
Queen’s Management School hosts an active community of doctoral students in Accounting and related disciplines. Each student is supervised by at least two members of academic staff.
Prospective students who do not yet have the requisite background in Accounting to pursue PhD research directly are encouraged to apply for our MSc Accounting and Finance programme, which embeds core research training skills throughout the degree.
The research focus and strengths of the Department of Accounting align with the School’s Centre for Not-for-profit and Public-sector Research (CNPR), an interdisciplinary research centre which aims to promote research into issues relating to public-sector and not-for-profit organisations.
