Associate Professor

Sandra Tillema studied Economics (specialisation Business Economics) at the University of Groningen. Since 1996, she has been an academic staff member of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen. She is now academic director of Career Services and Corporate Relations. Her research focuses on the field of management control. In the past, Sandra Tillema worked on topics, such as difference between firms in the sophistication of accounting instruments, the use of performance information in the public sector (more specifically, information from benchmarking and performance auditing exercises), and the control of public sector partnerships. Nowadays, Sandra Tillema is involved in multiple research projects. One project is focused on the role of management accountants in banks. One of the questions is how the role identity of its management accountants influences the bank's risk management practices. Another question is how personality traits of management accountants influence the extent to which they engage in job crafting. Another project is concerned with a firm which is undergoing a lean transformation. The research question is how control systems support the creation, retention and transfer of knowledge during this transformation. More recently, Sandra developed an interest in anti-money laundering measures in the banking sector and internationalisation of the audit profession.
