Jung Ho Choi is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Accounting at the MIT Sloan School of Management and an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Jung Ho's research interests lie at the intersection of accounting and labor, focusing on the impact of informational frictions on labor market processes and outcomes, as well as their intricate interplay. Within the realm of corporate disclosure as a primary research context, he examines how informational frictions, particularly those related to employers, interact with the labor market across three dimensions. Firstly, he investigates how corporate disclosure, including instances of accounting fraud, influences corporate decision-making, subsequently shaping the labor market with implications for variables such as wages and job turnover. Secondly, he delves into how corporate disclosure actively shapes the labor market by studying how employees, as vital stakeholders, consume corporate disclosure (e.g., earnings announcements) to inform their decision-making processes, such as job search strategies. Lastly, Jung Ho explores the impact of employees as inputs in the (information) production function, examining their role in shaping corporate disclosure itself. By delving into these multidimensional aspects, his research illuminates the complex relationships between accounting, labor, and informational frictions.
Jung Ho earned his PhD from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business in 2017. Prior to that, he obtained a Master's degree in statistics from Columbia University in 2012. Following his graduation from Korea University with a Bachelor's degree in economics in 2005, he worked as a financial adviser at PricewaterhouseCoopers in South Korea for five years.
