Have you considered studying for a PhD in Accounting?

The PhD programme in Accounting at LSE enables students to develop the required technical, methodological and intellectual skills for conducting research of the highest international standards and gives them the opportunity to become members of an integrated community of researchers and leading academics.

The Department of Accounting at LSE takes pride in its diverse faculty and student body coming from across the globe to engage in the study of economic, institutional and organisational aspects of accounting and financial management. We take a broad view of accounting, as well as of the methods with which accounting questions are being researched, and thus we aim to attract PhD applications from those who have an interest to pursue research in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Accounting, regulation and financial reporting
  • Accounting and financial management
  • Accounting, organisations and institutions
  • Management accounting and organisational control
  • Accounting, governance and risk management
  • Accounting and public policy; accounting history

The department strongly encourages early applications. Applicants wishing to be considered for ESRC funding in particular should ensure they have submitted a complete application for admission, including transcripts and references, by 9 January 2017. LSE has also offers the PhD Studentship scheme. Please see the Financial Support Office webpage for full details of all funding opportunities available.
