The Department of Accounting actively embeds outreach activities across departmental research and educational programs by identifying synergies and opportunities for increased impact and relevance. At the heart of our outreach activities is The Accounting and Financial Management Center of Excellence (ACE), a unique hub for student, faculty and business talent engagement and growth.

The Department of Accounting partners with world-class organizations from diverse industries as a signature of our outreach program ensuring diverse knowledge, perspectives, experience and strategic thinking to our academic discourse. These industry leaders form The Accounting and Financial Management Center of Excellence (ACE) while senior executives from our ACE partners form the ACE Advisory Board.

The Accounting and Financial Management Center of Excellence (ACE) provides a platform for ongoing meaningful discourse between our research teams and practice, informing the knowledge banks of all members and providing opportunities for future collaborations with partner companies such as Atlas Copco, Deloitte, Elekta, Ericsson, EY, Handelsbanken, Investor, KPMG, McKinsey, Nordea, pwc, Ratos and Skanska.

Going a step further, as the cornerstone of the ACE partnership, our MSc in Accounting, Valuation and Financial Management and Executive Education programs feature guest lectures and workshops from our ACE partners across all courses, field trips to partner companies and collaboration on MSc theses projects.
