Manchester welcomed us (me and my family) on 21st November 2010. It was winter when we step in. We enjoyed every second of the travelling until we reached our friend's house in Salford. Thanks to Syahrizal and Siti Nurbaiti for the company. Alhamdulillah.

My name is Zubir Azhar and I am a PhD student at The University of Manchester. My PhD is mostly Management Accounting. I studied Accounting at Universiti Teknologi MARA Malaysia. I then joined industry until I secured MIA membership. I started to work on accounting research as term career and for my own personal interests. I decided to pursue a PhD study to learn and understand the scientific way of doing research - especially qualitative ones.
Prior to joining Manchester Business School, I was an accounting lecturer at Universiti Teknologi MARA Kedah. I am a Chartered Accountant of Malaysian Institute of Accountants and a Member of CPA (Australia).
