Norwegian School of Economics


The Department of Accounting, Auditing and Law offers a PhD program within three research areas; financial accounting, auditing and management accounting/control.

The programme has a strong international focus, with opportunities to visit other top international universities and business schools. Specialised courses offered by other Nordic universities complement our in-house course sequence.


The programme is relatively small, which ensures close interaction with the department’s faculty members and with research programs such as Beyond Budgeting, FOCUS and the Norwegian Centre of Taxation (see nhh.no for more information).
