He has also taught at the full-time MBA level, teaching the core managerial accounting class both at Ross and at London Business School.  At Ross, Oswald has also taught two managerial accounting electives to full-time MBA and MAcc students.  In addition, he has taught more senior students; specifically he has taught the core managerial course to part-time MBA students at Ross, and to executive MBA students and Sloan Masters students at London Business School.  Finally, Oswald has taught on a number of non-degree (both company specific and open-enrollment) programs at London Business School.

Professor Oswald's research interests primarily focus on the use of accounting information by capital market participants.  Specifically, he has written a number of research papers which focus on accounting for research and development costs, accounting for pensions, and share repurchases.
