Research is a strategic priority and well supported by Warwick's long-established research reputation and growing culture of interdisciplinarity. We also contribute to teaching and supervision across the top-ranked WBS undergraduate, postgraduate, Warwick MBA, and Doctoral programmes.
Our research covers key aspects of accounting research such as financial and corporate reporting expertise, and capital market-based accounting and we employ a variety of methodologies including historical research, qualitative research and econometric approaches. Our access to research databases (COMPUSTAT, Datastream, Boardex, WRDS, Thomson One Banker, including Investext and IBES) compares favourably with US institutions.
We welcome researchers with interests in all aspects of accounting and methodology. We not only offer opportunities to work with colleagues in Accounting, but also encourage collaboration with others in WBS such as colleagues in Finance , Behavioural Science and Organisational Behaviour & Industrial Relations.
