Organisation profile:

The research group Accounting conducted research in three sub-domains: auditing, financial reporting and management accounting. The research group masters a broad variety of research methodologies: empirical/archival, experimental, analytical and case study. As it is challenging to compete at an international level in the three sub-domains with the limited number of staff available, and as the competition worldwide in the financial reporting area is significantly more intense than in the two other domains (which could be seen as ‘niche markets’), the research group has chosen to specialize mainly in two sub-domains in the future: auditing (however with an explicit link to financial reporting) and management accounting.
