Posting in the accounting sub-forum might get you more help.

But what about something like culture and the harmonisation of accounting standards? Or conservatism/removal of prudence?

Not really got many ideas - this is why I chose not to do my dissertation in accounting!

Do you have a part-time job or access to someone in a business? If you do, think of a way you could include them in your study.

Did you read an article at some point during your study that took your interest? Is there an area in there that you could study? If you've studied auditing, could you look into value relevance of various audit reports (i.e. sustainability and environmental auditing etc)?

What are your interests?

Corporate social responsibility?
The effect of dividend on share price?
Gender differences?

I had a few guys in my year do something about football (it was so popular in the past it had its own supervisor). You can take whatever you like

Hi Grin, I used literature review to search different methods of budgeting etc, I also conducted an interview with a management accountant of a non profit organisation to understand what budgeting they use. Try and schedule two/three interviews so you can compare
