About me

Associate Professor Ebba Sjögren joined Stockholm Business School (Accounting Section) in the Spring of 2017. She holds a PhD from the Stockholm School of Economics (2006).

Her present research interests center on the role of accounting in experts’ decision-making, and in the control and coordination of professional work.

An ongoing research project, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (2017-2020), studies valuation and price formation in markets for in-patient pharmaceutical treatments across four national markets. This project is undertaken together with Professor Hans Kjellberg (SSE) and Dr. Linus Johansson Krafve (SIR).

A second project, previously funded by the Swedish Research Council (2015-2018), investigates the decision usefulness of financial reporting information from a behavioral user perspective. This project is a collaboration with Dr. Anja Hjelström (SIR) and Assistant Professor Tomas Hjelström (SSE). The research has previously also received financial support from the Swedish Enterprise Accounting Group within the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise.

Ebba Sjögren has previously worked with Associate Professor Karin Svedberg-Helgesson (SSE) and Professor Ulrika Mörth (Stockholm University) on a project funded by the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation that investigated how a "risk-based approach" to anti-money laundering regulation was implemented in three industries: financial services, audit and law.

Ebba Sjögren is the main supervisor for Desirée Ödén (Accounting, SBS) and previously supervised Emilia Cederberg (Accounting, SSE), who successfully defended her thesis in December 2019. She is affiliated to the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) and the academic think tank Leading Health Care.

Ebba Sjögren has teaching experience within management control (BSc, MSc, EMBA), financial accounting (BSc) and qualitative methods (BSc, MSc, PhD), as well as organizational theory, marketing and strategy.
