Profile

Biography

Jacob Agyemang re-joined the University of Essex as a Lecturer in Accounting in September 2016. He previously held lectureship/teaching positions at the Queen Mary University of London, University of East London, University of Suffolk and again, University of Essex. At the above universities, Jacob was among others, responsible for either the design, preparation, assessment and/or the delivery of courses linked to Management Accounting, Financial Accounting, Performance Management Accounting, Corporate Financial Management, Issues in Management Accounting and Financial Decision Making. His academic work is augmented with non-academic work experiences linked to companies such as the British Petroleum, TNS Field Ltd and the Range Superstores. His research interest is interdisciplinary, and in large part underlined by critical understanding with a focus on the multi-differentiated and interdependent contextual factors that shape management accounting and control systems (MACS) in the private and public sectors of less developed countries (LDCs).
