Academic Area

Nemit Shroff is the School of Management Distinguished Professor and an Associate Professor of Accounting at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Shroff’s primary research interest concerns whether and why accounting disclosures such as audited financial statements, management forecasts, and press releases affect the corporate financing and investing policies of public and private companies. In addition, his research examines the reasons why corporate disclosure is regulated across the world and the economic consequences of regulating (or not regulating) disclosure. His research has been published in top accounting and finance journals and has received several awards, including the 2011 FARS Best Dissertation Award, the 2014 Competitive Manuscript Award, and the 2016 FARS Best Paper Award.

Born in India, Shroff earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Mumbai and his MBA from Amrita School of Business. He then came to the U.S. to pursue his doctoral degree at the University of Michigan.
