The Accounting Area faculty are leaders in scholarship and serve as thought-leaders in their respective fields, shaping real-world discussions through their interactions with global institutions and companies.

Our research draws on economics, psychology, finance, and statistics to study issues related to the use of accounting information by capital markets and companies. Such issues include:

  • The pricing of securities in capital markets;
  • The design of performance measurement and incentive systems; and
  • Best practices in risk management and corporate governance.

Faculty in the area teach in the Undergraduate, MBA, EMBA, GEMBA, and EML programs, with courses on financial reporting and management control. Our faculty are dedicated to providing a transformational educational experience to each of our students.
