Our Department is internationally-recognised for its scholarly contributions in the fields of: Accounting Education, Auditing, Capital Market Research, Corporate Governance, Financial Reporting, Carbon and Environmental Reporting, and Performance Measurement and Management.

Our relationship with Ngāi Tahu as mana whenua within their takiwā of Te Waipounamu and, through this, as the University’s principal Treaty partner is especially important.
