Associate Professor Monte Wynder came to academia from the banking industry. Prior to joining the USC, he taught both management and financial accounting at the University of Southern Queensland, the University of New South Wales, the University of Lethbridge (Canada), and the University of Newcastle.
Monte's research has included the study of the effects of instruction and practice on the acquisition of accounting knowledge and the effects of management accounting control system design on creativity as manifest in continuous improvement programs in organisations.
His current research continues to examine the effects of control system design on performance with an emphasis on the integration of social and environmental performance measures in the balanced scorecard.
