Teaching and Supervision

Teaching Statement

My overall philosophy of teaching is to provide informative and enthusiastic lectures in a supportive and non-threatening atmosphere. I always try to awake the curious mind through an enjoyable discussion at the end of each lecture. I also gain great satisfaction and enjoyment from my role as a teacher to see students grow in confidence in their ability to tackle problems, determine answers and in confidence to put forward alternative ideas. I am currently teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate accounting courses, and I am supervising students in their post-graduate research projects. 

Courses Coordinated

  • 110.303 Integrative Accounting
  • 110.703 Management Accounting and Decision Making

Graduate Supervision Statement

I am passionate about working with Master and Doctoral students and guide them through the research journey. My students come from a diverse background: some are international and others are domestic students. Each student is unique and therefore I adjust my style to fit for the student's needs. My philosophy is that students need to be passionate about their research topic. As they will drive it, it is extremely important that they know why they want to do post-graduate research. The supervisory team always work collectively to bring our strengths together for our students’ best interests.


Dr Hedy Huang is available for Masters and Doctorial supervision.
