Emeritus Professor of Management Accounting

Prior to joining Loughborough University in October 2003, Lin Fitzgerald was at Warwick University. She is a Chartered Management Accountant, a member of the Research Board of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and a founding member of the management board of the Performance Measurement Association (PMA).

Lin’s research interests and publications are in the areas of performance measurement and cost information for decision-making in service organisations. The focus of her research is on the interplay between financial and non-financial measures and it is typically interdisciplinary and case based.

Lin has a strong track record in funded research having received and managed grants from the ESRC, ESPRIT and repeated funding from CIMA. She has published widely, including articles in Management Accounting Research, International Journal of Operations and Production Management, International Journal of Service Industry Management, International Journal of Business Performance and Accounting and Business Research.

She has presented her research to both academic and practitioner audiences around the world and strives to integrate theory and practice in a way that makes academic research relevant to practitioners. Her success in this endeavour is reflected by her invited article for the Financial Times' Mastering Management Series “Integrated Approaches to Performance”.
