Many of our researchers are part of the supra-regional Collaborative Research Centre, which has more than 100 dedicated researchers investigating how accounting and taxation influence the transparency of companies and how regulations and corporate transparency affect the economy and society.


The quality of the department is evidenced by outstanding publications in international journals.

Our high level of activity in research and also in practice transfer is particularly evident within the research centres and the Collaborative Research Centre.
