Introduction to Management Accounting (BUS140)
Management Accounting for Decision Making (BUS239)
I pursue two main areas of research; both stem from the 2007/08 financial crisis:
1. PhD area: Is Accounting education/training overly focused on profit and wealth maximisation at the expense of ethics, if so, what are the ramifications for society?
Here, I am currently exploring the dynamics of ethics in accounting and its relationship with society. In particular, he is focused on the perception of final year Business School students and recent graduates, within Transformative Learning Theory as the conceptual framework.
2. In relation to the above, I have been keen to explore CSR, Accounting and Higher Education. In 2015, this resulted in producing a book chapter with one of my PhD supervisor’s titled: 'Accounting education and CSR in developing countries – the case of India.'
