Our thriving body of PhD students are currently researching: finance, market reactions to accounting, management accounting and control, judgment and decision-making in accounting and audit, corporate reporting and governance
The Adam Smith Business School places a strong emphasis on the development of valuable transferable and personal development skills, such as finance-oriented computer programming, presentation and professional writing skills.
As a PhD student in Accounting & Finance, you will have opportunities to:
- present and discuss your work in progress with colleagues and staff members
- present and discuss your work in progress with staff members in other Scottish Universities through the Scottish Doctoral Colloquium
- present your work in national or international conferences (usually at later stages of the PhD process)
- attend the Wards research seminars
- benefit from the College of Social Sciences Graduate School Research Training programme
- complete a PhD research class that looks at a variety of topics such as the use of Stata and Minitab, case studies and various approaches to accounting research
- attend research training on key literature (either solely on accounting or finance or a combination of accounting and finance empirical literature)
- attend research training on necessary software programmes assisting you in your research (e.g., Nvivo, Stata)
- attend research training on qualitative and/or quantitative techniques, with a focus on accounting and finance (econometrics in particular)
You may also have the opportunity to become a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA), delivering tutorials to first and second year undergraduate students and helping with assessment of undergraduate assignments and examinations. Teaching is payable at a University-wide hourly rate and it is anticipated that an active GTA, subject to suitability and availability, should be able to earn up to £1,500 per annum. GTAs undergo compulsory training. PhD researchers may have the opportunity to become GTAs from their second year. Vacant posts are advertised towards the end of semester 2.
