Exploring the performative effects of management accounting and control

Aleksandra’s research explores the performative effects of management accounting and control systems. She applies her expertise in management accounting to complex and emerging phenomena that modern organisations face – such as digitalisation, talent development, equity and sustainability. 

Aleksandra is also interested in investigating unconventional settings – including creative and innovative environments, emerging growth companies, family firms and research projects. Her work has been published in several peer-reviewed academic journals. In her research projects, she collaborates with various research institutions and organisations around the world. She has taught at different European business schools, winning several teaching and research awards.

Before joining Vlerick, she was an Assistant Professor at WU Vienna. Prior to her academic career, Aleksandra worked as a consultant at Deutsche Bank Inhouse Consulting and The Grameen Creative Lab  – where she gained important practical experience that she now applies to her research and teaching posts.

Aleksandra teaches on our Masters and MBA programmes and she's co-Director of the Centre for Financial Leadership and Digital Transformation.
