Clients' Workplace Environment and Corporate Audits

Adi Masli, Felix Meschke, Jim Guthrie, Minjie Huang

Academic area(s): Accounting /  Finance /  Human Resources

Our study shows that organizational workplace environments affect auditor risk assessments and auditing outcomes and provide insights for practicing auditors and corporate executives.

Partisan Bias in Fund Portfolios

Jide Wintoki, Yaoyi Xi

Academic area(s): Finance

We document that fund managers are more likely to allocate assets to firms managed by executives and directors with whom they share a similar political partisan affiliation. We find that this bias is not associated with improved fund performance.

Faculty and Current Students

The School has a highly motivated and qualified cadre of professors with interdisciplinary research orientation. Most of our faculty have Ph.D.’s from the top U.S. research universities. Some of our graduates have been placed at leading business schools such as Cornell, Duke, Ohio State, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin-Madison.  We have also placed students at schools with more of an emphasis on teaching, such as the University of New Hampshire, Marquette University, and Wichita State University.
