Topic Areas

Hawai’i Accounting Research Doctoral Institute invites at least four well-known and outstanding researchers from the following areas:


  •  Financial (including international accounting)
  •  Managerial accounting
  •  Auditing
  •  Accounting information system and
  •  Experimental (or analytic) research in accounting


Each year, at least two professors will cover the financial accounting area to meet the high demand. Other areas of research will alternate from one year to another. The outstanding accounting researchers will provide an overview of their research area and guide doctoral students on selecting research topics relevant to the accounting profession. These exceptional researchers will choose and offer a reading list to Ph.D. students a month in advance of their classes. Invited Ph.D. students will obtain and read the assigned reading list and in preparation of attending their classes in Hawaii.
