Sjögren, Ebba

Associate Professor
Department of Accounting

Ebba Sjögren joined the Department of Accounting in 2009, after defending her PhD in 2006 (SSE, Department of Management & Organization). She is affiliated to the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) and the academic think tank Leading Health Care.

Her main research interests are 1) the use of financial and management accounting information in experts' decision-making, and 2) the role of accounting in control of professional work, in particular within healthcare and higher education.

In one on-going project she collaborates with Assistant Professors Anja Hjelström, Tomas Hjelström and Carl Henning Christner (SSE) in studying the decision usefulness of financial reporting information from a user perspective. This research has received funding from the Swedish Research Council/Vetenskapsrådet and has also been supported by the Swedish Enterprise Accounting Group within the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise. For a practitioner report see here.

Since 2017, she has also worked with Professor Hans Kjellberg (SSE) on valuation and price formation in markets for in-patient pharmaceutical treatments for cancer. This project is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
