Sjögren, Ebba

Associate Professor
Department of Accounting
Associate Professor
Center for Resilient Health

Ebba Sjögren joined the Department of Accounting in 2009, after defending her PhD in 2006 (Department of Management & Organization, SSE). She is affiliated to the House of Governance and Public Policy and has previously served as a board member of 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 Dr. Anja Hjelström and Assistant Professors Tomas Hjelström and Carl Henning Christner in studying the decision usefulness of financial reporting information from a user perspective. This research 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 (Department of Marketing and Strategy, SSE) on valuation and price formation in markets for in-patient pharmaceutical treatments for cancer. This project was funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
