The London School of Economics and Political Science has confirmed its position as a world-leading research university, with outstanding success in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. The Department of Accounting has continued to deliver exemplary performance in financial accounting, financial management, management accounting, and risk regulation. Seventy per cent of the research activity in Business and Management Studies - the Unit under which the Department was assessed - was ranked as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' in terms of originality, significance and rigour. This confirms the results of the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise for the Department of Accounting.
