Accounting and Financial Management
The Accounting Unit of Newcastle Business School develops individuals to achieve their leadership, accounting and employability potential through professionally relevant, research engaged education.
The Accounting and Financial Management subject group undertakes practice relevant research in a range of applied subject areas, enabling us to interpret developments in what is a very fast changing subject field.
Apart from the highlighted examples of policy relevant research, other projects that have focused on disclosure narrative include the use of environmental information by airline companies in their annual reports and the disclosure of charitable giving policies by FTSE 100 companies.
A key area of research is in corporate governance both in the UK and overseas, including Russia and Malaysia.
Further work within the finance and accounting area highlights the debate around fair value reporting and the implications for financial statements, the growth of ethics in accounting education versus the transfer of ethics to personal values and deep learning, efficiency and management in local government, the evaluation of virtual markets, risk management and risk reporting and European compliance on SME financial reporting.
The group is proud of its array of expertise in areas such as:
- Financial reporting
- Auditing and taxation
- Risk management
- Corporate governance
- Performance measurement
- Money laundering
