Research interest

My current research interests stem from my wish to understand fundamental aspects of accounting. These fundamental aspects include studying accounting and accounting particulars from the perspective of the financial economist, providing proof that potentially affects such diverse areas as corporate tax and accounting functions, financial analysis and international financial reporting requirements, the theory of the firm, customers’ satisfaction and firm productivity, internal auditing, corporate finance and financial performance of organizations. In the area of marketing, my research interests focus primarily on consumer behaviour, product positioning, market targeting and the formulation of marketing plans and strategies. I studied the aspects using financial ratios and other tools.

My most recent masters’ thesis in Business Administration  analysed the effects of financial statements to Business organization performance in Rwanda taking a sample of CIMERWA Ltd. The findings revealed that the liquidity of CIMERWA Ltd was good especially in 2007, 2008 and 2011. This situation was changed in 2011 whereby this ability increased above the rule of thumbs of 2:1 and 1:1 for the current, quick/cash ratios respectively. The turnover was decreasing from 2007 to 2011 at the rate varying from 26% increase between 2007 and 2008 to -1% between 2010 and 2011. This was followed by decreases in the cost of sales from 41% in 2008 to 6% in 2011. Total assets of CIMERWA Ltd have been increasing from 2007 to 2011. However, their increase rates have been decreasing from 88% (2007-2008), 1% (2009-2010) and 86 (2010-2011). CIMERWA Ltd has good debt management policies as the debt ratios have not been under the tolerable limits. This shows that the company is financially healthy as it is able to handle whatever obligations. The profitability of the company was not good. This was shown by the rates of decrease in the net profit as well as other income statement components as justified by the unpleasant profitability ratios.

I have extended significantly my research trough the supervision of more than 30 BSc dissertations.
