Didem is a Senior Lecturer in Financial Accounting and Course Leader for BSc Accounting and Finance at Lord Ashcroft International Business School.
Didem Gundogdu joined Anglia Ruskin University in September 2012. Didem received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration (major in Accounting and Finance) from Marmara University in Turkey and completed a Masters degree in Accounting and Finance at University of Exeter, where she was awarded a research scholarship for her doctorate studies. Didem is currently in the final stages of her PhD and is working on a number of research papers. Her research focuses on the link between non-financial forms of capital and firm value, with a particular emphasis on social network theory and analysis.
Didem’s research interests broadly lie in capital markets-based research and financial reporting. In particular, her research focuses on the role non-financial forms of capital play in firm valuation. Didem also has a special interest in corporate governance and is very keen to explore board dynamics with a view to understand how firms derive value from well-connected directors and the wealth of talent inherent in boards.
Didem would be interested in supervising doctoral research in the area of financial reporting and capital markets-based research. She is currently co-supervising Haseeb Ayaz and Xueqing Cheng with Dr. Lenka Krupova.
Didem’s teaching falls into two broad areas: Financial Reporting and Analysis and Management Accounting. She also has a special interest in Corporate Governance.
