Overview

The 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 Corporate Finance, Master of Finance, Master of Corporate Governance, Master of Professional Accounting and MSc in Accounting - 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.

In 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.

Our 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.

Our 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. These top journals include Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Empirical Finance, The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of International Business Studies, Management Science, Review of Accounting Studies and Contemporary Accounting Research.
