School views research as an important activity, one that complements
our teaching commitments. Given our extensive portfolio of postgraduate
programmes - Doctor and Master of Philosophy, Master of Professional
Accounting, Master of Corporate Finance, Master of Finance, MSc in Accounting and Master of Corporate Governance - it is essential for our
staff to involve themselves in the various frontiers of accounting
and finance research and disseminate their latest
research outputs to our graduate students.
recent years, our School has developed and specialized in the research
areas of corporate governance, capital markets and information value,
and corporate finance. In addition, many of our staff members are
also involved in other major areas of accounting and finance research
such as taxation, management accounting, auditing, investment, financial
markets, law, and economics. Our School has subscribed an extensive
array of databases and computing software to facilitate staff in
their research activities.
School's regular research seminars provide a forum for staff members
to interact with local and overseas scholars relating to their latest
research findings. Prominent researchers from North America, Australasia,
and Asia are invited to participate in these seminars as guest speakers.
School places great emphasis on research output quality. The number
of papers that get published in top-tier academic journals has been
increasing in the past few years. Other than enhancing our reputation
in the academic community, our increased journal presence has also
been beneficial to our recruitment of capable research faculty members.
