  • Accounting

    The MIT Sloan Accounting Group’s research spans many areas of accounting, including the impact of accounting information on capital markets, the use of accounting information for contracting purposes, corporate disclosure practices, executive compensation, and taxation. In addition, MIT Sloan accounting faculty has begun investigating governmental accounting issues.

    Accounting is a means of communicating information about individuals or organizations. Through research, teaching, and professional service, the Accounting Group seeks to inform—as well as influence—this communication process.

    Our faculty is regularly invited to present their research to fellow academics, companies, industry groups, accounting standard-setting bodies, regulatory agencies, and governments.

    Four editors of the Journal of Accounting and Economics call MIT Sloan home. In its more than three decade existence, the JAE has come to be recognized for the publication of the highest quality manuscripts that employ economic analyses of accounting problems.

    Accounting group teaching activities include courses in the MBA, Executive MBA, MIT Sloan Fellows, Master of Finance, Executive Education, and undergraduate programs.
