Prof Trevor Hopper

Adjunct Professor
School of Accounting and Commercial Law


Trevor Hopper holds a B.Sc (Bus Admin) from Bradford University and an M.Phil from Aston University. He has been an Adjunct Professor of Accounting at the Victoria University of Wellington since 2005. Currently he is Emeritus Professor of Management Accounting at the University of Sussex; and an Honorary Professor of Accounting at the University of Essex. Before joining the University of Sussex, he was a professor in the School of Accounting and Finance at the University of Manchester, where he was Head of Department for four years, and Director of Postgraduate Studies and Research for many more. Previously he worked at the Universities of Wolverhampton and Sheffield, and he has held visiting academic appointments, the most extended being at the Universities of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA; Queens, Canada; Fukuoka and Kyushu, Japan; Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden; and Griffith Gold Coast, Australia. Prior to his academic career, Professor Hopper worked as a cost accountant in industry.

Professor Hopper’s research applies organizational and social theories to management controls using intensive case study methods, though he has made contributions to accounting history and financial accounting. His research has examined multinational firms' adoption of ERPs; the implementation and usage of ABC in European utilities; and world class manufacturing in firms and national programmes of competitiveness. His current major interest lies in accounting in less developed countries. He has co-edited five books, including several issues of Issues in Management Accounting and The Handbook of Accounting in Developing Countries. He has published over one hundred articles as book chapters and articles in research journals such as Accounting, Organizations and Society, the Auditing, Accounting and Accountability Journal, the British Accounting Review, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, the European Accounting Review, Financial Accountability and Management; the Journal of Accounting in Emerging Economies; the Journal of Management Studies; and Management Accounting Research. He has supervised or co-supervised over thirty PhD students to completion.

Professor Hopper cofounded the Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Accounting Conference and has been an editor of the British Accounting Review, associate editor of Critical Perspectives on Accounting, and a guest editor of special issues of Accounting, Organizations and Society, the Auditing, Accounting and Accountability Journal, Management Accounting Research, and Critical Perspectives on Accounting. He is a consulting editor for the Journal of Accounting in Emerging Economies, and an editorial board member of Accounting, Accountability & Performance; the Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal; Critical Perspectives on Accounting; Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change; Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management; and Research on Accounting & Emerging Economies.

Professor Hopper was awarded Lifetime Achievement Awards by the British Accounting Association in 2006 and the Global Accounting and Organisational Change Network in 2017; the African Accounting and Finance Association Platinum Award for research in Africa in 2018; and an honorary doctorate by Stockholm School of Economics in 2011. He was inducted into the Interdisciplinary Accounting Hall of Fame in 2016, and he has received various awards for outstanding papers and services to academic journals.
