Emeritus Professor

Mark Tippett is an Emeritus Professor in the School of Business and Economics.  He has held professorial appointments at several institutions including the Australian National University, the University of Exeter and the University of Sydney.  He is a past Joint Editor of The British Accounting Review and is a past Chairman of the Conference of Professors of Accounting and Finance.  He has also served as a member of several editorial boards, including Abacus, Accounting and Business Research, the Journal of Business Finance and Accounting and the European Journal of Finance.  Professor Tippett is also an Associate member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia.  

Research interests span theoretical and applied work on stochastic processes including the relationship between equity prices and accounting (book) figures; the impact of “real” options on equity prices; estimating returns on financial instruments using discretely sampled data and the probability density function for equity returns.  He has devoted most of his academic career towards illustrating the pseudo-scientific nature of much of the empirical research which is conducted in the accounting and finance disciplines."
