Professor Ken McPhail

Ken was appointed Professor of Accounting at La Trobe in September 2010.  Prior to this he was professor of Social and Ethical Accounting at the University of Glasgow, a position he held since 2004.  Ken has published and lectured internationally in the area of accounting and business ethics, and is currently focusing on the links between corporate accountability and human rights. 

While at Glasgow, Ken took his students to prison as part of his ethics course and caused a bit of a stir at an international conference when he set his paper, on accounting’s role in the holocaust, to Bach, with a cellist playing as he presented the arguments of the paper.
