Accounting and finance academics are based within the School of Business, to read more on their research interests and actives, please visit the School's Research pages.

Our main research interests are:

Our reputation for research has its roots in the pioneering work of Nobel Prize-winning economist Robin Coase whose work had an enormous impact not only on theory but also policy and practice. This emphasis on useful knowledge is a defining feature of the work we do.

In 2016, we revitalised our mission for research and knowledge exchange in Business. This mission aligns closely with the interdisciplinary and transformative University of Dundee research agenda.
