    Frank Verbeeten, professor of Accounting

    Prof. F.H.M. Verbeeten (1969) has been appointed professor of Accounting at the University of Amsterdam’s (UvA) Faculty of Economics and Business, effective January 1, 2018.

    Frank Verbeeten’s research focuses on the design of (management) accounting & control systems in organisations and the role played by the finance function (including the CFO) in the development and use of these kinds of systems. He specifically studies the effects on the achievements of an organisation when the intangible assets of a company (innovation, brand value, customer value, employee satisfaction) are measured. His other research areas include the role of accounting & control systems in government organisations and (the influence of technology on) the set-up and role of the finance function in organisations.

    As professor at the UvA, Verbeeten will strengthen teaching and research in the field of accounting and control. Verbeeten will also, in his capacity as programme director of the Post Master Accountancy (PMA) programme and deputy programme director of the Register Controller (RC/EMFC), be active in the Amsterdam Business School’s (ABS) executive programmes that focus on the financial profession. Verbeeten has taught courses on accounting and control at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Post-Master’s level to students in the field of economics, business management and technology. In addition, he has been responsible for several training programmes, including the UvA’s PMA programme (2011-2014).

    Verbeeten has been professor of Accounting at Utrecht University’s School of Economics (U.S.E.) since 2013, where he is also programme director of the Fundamentals of Business and Economics programme which falls under the university’s science faculty. Furthermore, he is treasurer of the Utrecht Center for Affordable Biotherapeutics for Public Health (UCAB), a non-profit foundation that facilitates the development and sustainable production of high-quality and affordable biotherapeutics in developing countries. He has also been professor of Management Control at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) since 2016, where he is involved in the Amsterdam Research Center in Accounting and the Executive Master’s in Finance and Control (EMFC). In his capacity as professor, Verbeeten is responsible for the set-up and development of an International Executive MBA for financials. He was previously affiliated with the UvA as associate professor and as senior manager with Deloitte.

    Verbeeten is a member of the editorial board Journal of Management Control and has been a editorial board member for of MCA, Journal for Financial Executives and Tijdschrift Public Controlling. He has published extensively in various national and international scientific journals, including The Accounting Review, International Journal of Research in Marketing, Management Accounting Research (best paper award 2014), Organization Studies and Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal.
