Managerial Accounting and Control

Studies the role of accounting in organizations and society.

About This Research Group

Managerial Accounting and Control is concerned with the roles of accounting in organizations and society, and with the behavior of managers and other stakeholders in interacting with accounting information. The group is focused on two research pillars: qualitative and historical research and behavioral research.

In qualitative and historical research, faculty examine the uses of accounting through fieldwork, interviews and other means. The group also has a strong capability in accounting history, which explains present practice through tracing it to accounting’s past.

The group also has a strategic commitment to behavioral research. We have begun to assemble a first class group of behavioral scholars who will examine the use of accounting through experimental, survey, and other means.

The group targets FT45 journals, especially Contemporary Accounting Research and Accounting, Organizations and Society. It also publishes in complementary outlets concerned with qualitative, historical, and behavioral studies, such as Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal; Accounting Historians Journal; Behavioral Research in Accounting; Critical Perspectives on Accounting and Management Accounting Research.
