Aziza Laguecir is currently Professor in Management Accounting. She holds a PhD in Management Control from ESSEC Business School and Strasbourg University. She has previous experience in international leading Business Schools (e.g., Laval University Québec, Imperial College U.K.).
Her research interests include management accounting and control systems and practices (MAS and MCS). More specifically, she developed two main axes of research. The first one focuses on the public sector (social housing and healthcare), where she explores the construction of profitability and cost systems and the role of MAS in situations of institutional complexities marked by pressures on both financial and social accountabilities. The second axis deals with surveillance and control systems in contemporary digitized organizations, with a particular interest in fraud, accounting scandals, and ethical aspects of MCS (notably in investment banking).
Professor Laguecir has published papers in prestigious academic journals such as Journal of Business Ethics, JPBAFM, Management Accounting Research, Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, the British Journal of Management, and the Organization Studies, International Studies of Management and Organization, Accounting Horizons, Journal of Management Development, and was an invited author of chapters in books.
She presented her work at various national and international conferences such as the American Accounting Association (AAA) Annual Meeting, the Canadian Academic Accounting Association (CAAA), and the European Accounting Association (EAA).
She is also involved in the scientific committee of EAA and IPA conferences. She currently serves as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting & Financial Management, and Contrôle Comptabilité Audit -Accounting Audit and Control. In addition, she is acting as a reviewer of several academic journals.
Finally, she has taught and designed managerial accounting and control courses at the undergraduate, graduate (MBA, MSc), Ph.D. levels, and executive programs for corporate managers.
