Our Finance and Accounting PhD programme in London aims to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. You will gain skills to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment and to open greater depth to your professional and personal life.
We organise our research into 15 research centres and groups. Each centre involves externally funded research and international collaborations. Our doctoral students are also actively involved in these groups. Researchers in accounting mainly cluster around two main areas:
- governance and ethics
- accounting history
The Accounting, Governance and Accountability (AGA) research group undertakes research projects unified by the overarching theme of accountability. We have enjoyed recent funding support from a number of external bodies including the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Specific areas of research expertise include:
- corporate reporting
- business ethics
- corporate philanthropy
- social and environmental accounting
- sustainability and social measurement
- third sector accountability
- accounting history
There are opportunities for you to study in any of these disciplines.
Our strong community of PhD students, includes home and international candidates, and a number of strong and active international links.
Throughout the academic year, the School holds a number of events on campus to which all students are invited. Events are topical, co-presented with experts in the City. The sessions provide a great opportunity for you to network with national and multinational organisations, alumni and peers.
You will be supervised by a member of the Newcastle University London team. In most cases you will also receive co-supervision from a member of the Newcastle University Business School team. This is to ensure that you gain the benefit of our staff expertise from both campuses.
