Accounting and Business Law Faculty

The accounting faculty is dedicated to providing a transformational educational experience to each of our students. We do this by helping our students learn more than how to generate financial information in accordance with current standards and procedures. We encourage them to think critically about what financial information means; how information guides and informs decisions made by investors, managers, and regulators; and how financial information must be placed into the appropriate context that usually includes qualitative factors. We believe this is the best way to prepare our students to become leaders in service to business and society.

Our research is motivated by our desire to impact practice. We take a cross-disciplinary approach integrating finance theory, operations, and psychology. We address important questions about financial markets, corporate governance, managerial incentives, and tax policy. Through our active workshop series, leading scholars, whom we invite from all over the world, enrich our collaborative academic endeavors and foster a supportive, professional environment.
