Research in the Management Accounting faculty includes topics such as management control systems (MCS) and practices, performance management and measurement systems (PMMS), the role of management accountants, organizational learning, organizational identities and sense-making, and gender issues. The Financial Accounting faculty conducts positive empirical research in areas such as international accounting, earnings management, governance, auditing, bankruptcy prediction, goodwill and intangibles.

The department includes more than 15 professors and 7 doctoral students, both in Financial and Managerial Accounting.

The IFAC Major in Corporate Accounting & Financial Management offers courses in both Financial and Managerial Accounting. This Major is profession-oriented, allowing students to obtain complete (CMA) or partial (Accountancy, DSCG) professional certifications.
