The accounting profession is undergoing a fundamental transformation in terms of its role in society, mode of operation, economic structure and value proposition.


Our faculty are involved in cutting edge research that we share with the wider community through the Jill McKinnon Research Seminar Series. Our faculty and guest speakers cover topics across the fields of accounting and governance. Our goal is to promote stimulating conversations between faculty, students, alumni and members of the community. These seminars are free and open to any academic/researcher.

If you would like to speak in the Jill McKinnon Seminar Series, please contact Emeritus Professor Graeme Harrison on 02 9850 8515.
