Conferences

Management Accounting Research Group (MARG)

The Management Accounting Research Group (MARG) conferences are dedicated to providing a forum for researchers and practitioners (approximately 50% of each) to discuss emerging research and practice. There are two annual MARG conferences - a one day event at LSE concerned with evaluating the latest trends in management accounting, and a one-and-a-half day event held at, and organised by, Aston Business School, Birmingham, which concentrates on discussing the research agenda in management accounting. 

2019 will celebrate 40 years of MARG.

Over the years, MARG has critically examined key innovations in management accounting, including:

  • Japanese management accounting;
  • business re-engineering;
  • activity-based costing and management;
  • strategic management accounting;
  • economic value-added approaches;
  • accounting and 'e' business; and
  • performance measurement and incentives.

Previous MARG conference distinguished speakers have included Jan Bouwens, Robin Cooper, Anthony Davila, Larry Gordon, David Larcker, Teemu Malmi, Jan Mouritsen, Sir Michael Peat, Bob Scapens, Mike Shields, Shyam Sunder, Juhani Vaivio and Wim Van der Stede among others.
