Business Measurement Research Program
The KPMG & UIUC Business Measurement Research Program was announced on January 30, 2002 to support research on new measurement, reporting and assurance concepts. All research approaches and paradigms are welcome including modeling, archival, experimental and field analysis applications. To benefit by advances in practice, and to anticipate future developments and needs, collaborative research teams involving both academic researchers and leading business and accounting professionals will be given the highest funding priority for the research projects supported by this Program.
The research program is planned to have a global reach and research funding will be provided to support creative and challenging projects to be conducted any where in the world. During the program's initial three-year term commencing in 2002, KPMG LLP has pledged $2.8 million in financial support. In addition, administrative support for the Program will provided by both KPMG LLP and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
