Dr Rob Wilson

Head of Department; Finance, Accounting & Business Systems


I joined Sheffield Hallam in 2002 to teach financial reporting, management accounting and economic decision making in the sport business industry. In 2019 I moved to Sheffield Business School to become Head of Department for Finance, Accounting & Business Systems; a department that is progressive and forward looking, engaged with industry and which offers uniquely applied degree and postgraduate programmes. My main research interests are in the finance, economics and governance of professional team sports and my PhD focused on the factors affecting financial performance in professional team sport. I routinely present my work at major conferences, serve on several editorial boards for leading journals and have numerous publications in the sport management field. I contribute regularly to media items discussing the finances of sport and football with local, national and international media outlets.
