Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


Accounting is one of the expertise area's on which RCEF is performing research.

One of the research topics within this domain is ‘reporting quality’. This is not an isolated area. There is a strong link with the other research topics such as ‘Strategic leadership’ (board of directors) and ‘Financing constraints & solutions’. For the stakeholders of private SMEs and family firms it is crucial that they can rely on the right information about the firm's financial situation and about other KPIs.

Other research topics within this domain relate to the configuration of management control systems (including management accounting systems) and the role of auditing in private family firms.
