    Personal profile

    Biography

    Elisabeth Dedman is a researcher with expertise in the areas of corporate governance, voluntary disclosure, and market-based accounting.  She joined Edge Hill University in 2021 after holding positions at the Universities of Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Bath, Warwick, Nottingham, and Surrey. Originally from the North West, she is now very glad to be back home.

    Elisabeth’s PhD was undertaken at Lancaster University and examined the impact of the original UK Code on Corporate Governance (the Cadbury Code, 1992) on board structure and managerial entrenchment in UK listed firms. Her interest in corporate governance remains strong, but she also conducts research into voluntary disclosure and voluntary audit (in private firms), as well as the effect that accounting has on market values. She has published in a wide range of journals, including: Abacus; Accounting and Business Research; British Accounting Review; Corporate Governance: an International Review; European Accounting Review; European Journal of Finance; Journal of Accounting and Economics; Journal of Accounting and Public Policy; and Journal of Corporate Finance. Elisabeth has been an Associate Editor for Accounting and Business Research and remains on its editorial board.  She has acted as external examiner at London Business School and Alliance Manchester Business School and has examined PhD submissions at the Universities of Manchester, Deakin, Exeter and Glasgow.

    She has received research award grants from ESRC, ICAEW and was a member of the Research Committee of the Institute of Chartered Accountings of Scotland for several years.

    Elisabeth is happy to consider applications from PhD candidates who wish to conduct empirical investigations into interesting current questions in the corporate environment. She has already supervised several students to successful completion of their doctoral studies.
