Teaching excellence and cutting-edge research at London Business School
Our Accounting subject area aims to excel in teaching, research and practice.
Students learn how managers can use financial accounting information to communicate effectively with investors. They also find out how to use managerial accounting information internally to make more effective decisions.
The Accounting faculty carry out cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics in financial accounting, managerial accounting, and corporate finance. These include:
- valuation of tangible assets
- corporate disclosure policies
- corporate governance
- security analysis
- implications of financial reporting for capital markets
- mergers and acquisitions
- regulation of accounting standards
- international accounting
- performance measurement.
Faculty members are on the editorial boards of the top-tier accounting journals and are actively shaping accounting practice through consulting in the corporate world. They have published their research in the leading journals in accounting, finance and economics.
The group also influences the future of the accounting profession through our PhD programme.
