About the department

We are a young and dynamic department with strong industry links, expert staff who consult for leaders in business and government, and state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities.

We offer a diverse range of cutting-edge degrees that prepare students for careers in established and emerging areas of finance and accounting, such as FinTech, banking, financial and management accounting and risk management.

We apply our research to inform teaching and assessment at all levels, with strong links with professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) and all six UK professional accountancy bodies: ACCA, CAI, CIMA, CIPFA, ICAEW, and ICAS. See our accreditations and rankings.

The department has a strong research culture and provides an ideal environment for early-career academics to develop into world-leading scholars. Our goal is to tackle practical research questions as well as deepening the theoretical understanding of our discipline.

We have produced high-level research outputs (including articles in the Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and Operations Research) and play a leading role in the global community through editorial positions with major journals, such as the Journal of Banking and Finance, and as advisors to both industry and governments.
