Accounting and Control
Accounting is often described as “the language of business” and it is used to communicate financial and non-financial information internally and externally to the organization. Control refers to the mechanisms used to manage an organisation so that it moves towards its objectives.
Accounting is a crucial aspect of managerial aspirations for control, which needs to be considered in relation to a broad set of control mechanisms, decision models and information sources. This makes it important to understand how accounting and control can be designed and used and how it affects - and is affected by - individuals, organizations, and society. In the Accounting and Control Group we aim to contribute to this understanding by conducting research in our broad field of study.
Accounting and control is also a very popular area of study among students in our department, especially among those pursuing engineering and business programs. The second leg of our mission is education and contributing to society through the provision of knowledgeable and skillful individuals with a critical mindset. We believe that the mix of research findings and insights based on hands-on business experience is a good starting point for education in accounting and control. We can help you prepare for a stimulating career with many options including financial and management accounting, control, finance, auditing and management consulting.
