Silvana Revellino, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Accounting

Dr. Silvana joined MBSC as an Associate Professor of Accounting. Before joining MBSC she was Associate Professor of Management Accounting at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. In 2007 she obtained the Ph.D in Economics and Management of Technology at the University of Bergamo, Italy. Prior to the doctorate, she has held several corporate positions in Italy: credit analyst at the Banca di Roma; CEO of a small business consulting company in the area of strategic planning and management of innovative projects; and CFO of a public university.

Professor Revellino has published on the interface between management control and innovation, management practices and thinking and accounting change. She is interested in analysing how relations between accounting signs, actions, values and meanings motivate, or even provoke, actors to become innovative by their attention to envisioning, rather than only executing things. In this view, the study of management accounting technologies goes beyond pure economic boundaries and it intertwines with semiotics, visual studies, the sociology of knowledge, and with STS (Science and Technology Studies).

Her research appears in journals such as European Accounting Review, Management Accounting Research, International Journal of Project Management.

The European Commission awarded her a Marie Curie grant for the project “The management control of innovation: the role of management control technologies in the offshoring of R&D processes” where she inquires into the potentialities and criticalities of management control systems as resources in the generation of change and innovative processes.

Professor Revellino also serves on the Standing Scientific Committee of the European Accounting Association.
