About the Author

Dr Stijn Masschelein, Senior Lecturer at the UWA Business School, has 12 years of experience teaching two advanced management accounting units at the University of Western Australia. He developed the curriculum for those units and wrote his own lecture notes for those classes which are available on his website or on the Social Science Research Network. One of the lectures notes, for Strategic Management Accounting, has been cited in two doctoral theses already and the author has received encouraging emails from colleagues from other institutions on how the notes helped them in their teaching. These lecture notes were the starting point for the textbook.

The author has developed a variety of online resources on programming and statistical analysis for research students at the UWA Accounting and Finance department. The lecture notes and resources rely on the author’s extensive knowledge of the academic literature which has also resulted in multiple publications, of which two are in the top journals in the field of Accounting (Masschelein et al., 2012; Masschelein & Moers, 2020). A full list of the author’s publications can be viewed on his UWA profile.
