Accounting and Finance

Our research is given cohesion through its organisation around several key areas in which we have particular research strengths; in accounting, these lie in financial reporting, auditing and accounting history; our research activity in finance is mostly concentrated on empirical corporate finance; however, we are also active in research on investments and derivative securities and most of our research is policy-focused; we regularly host a wide range of research seminars and produce an ongoing series of working papers.

Entry requirements

The PhD is demanding academically, and we expect candidates to demonstrate evidence of high levels of academic achievement; the university normally look for students for PhD or MPhil degrees to have a good upper 2nd class Honours degree or equivalent in a subject relevant to the field of study and/or a distinction or near distinction in a Master's degree.
