Governance, accountability and regulation


Our research in this area covers contemporary issues that face business professionals, accountants and financial managers in today's rapidly changing organisations, in both private and nonprofit sectors.

How are organisations governed? What determines their performance and governance arrangements? What are the risk factors facing modern organisations? And how do we build capacity for the future through superannuation and wealth management?
