Prof Carmona is well versed in management and accounting control, management structures and the implementation of ERPs. In his teaching, he is particularly interested in giving students a very holistic view of topics such as performance indicators and what drives changes in management accounting systems. “International MBA or executive MBA students are going to hold general management responsibilities”, he says. “So they need to know about the technical aspects of accounting, but also about how that will influence their vision and managerial skills”.
In addition to teaching, carrying out his duties as (dean for faculty affairs – rector, IE University) and writing for professional journals and magazines, Prof Carmona engages in consultancy work for corporations as well as conducting executive training and in-company programmes that are aimed at the top-level management of multinational enterprises. From 2006 to 2011, Prof Carmona served as Editor of the European Accounting Review, a premier accounting journal.
