Areas of Research

Faculty-student collaboration is a part of the Broad experience. Doctoral students have the opportunity to work with some of the top researchers in the following areas:

  • Auditing
  • Financial accounting
  • Managerial accounting
  • Taxation

One of our strengths is that we have faculty actively conducting research in all of these areas which provides a great benefit to our students. For more information on the faculty in each of these areas, click here.
