From the Dean

As I write this, the global economy is reeling. “Not enough information,” say some of the pundits; “Not the right information,” say others.

The scholars on our Accounting faculty work to remedy those complaints, looking at ways that information which firms provide the public can be made clearer, more accurate, and ultimately, more trustworthy. Undergirding their research—and their teaching of new accountants, CPAs, and other financial technicians—is the premise that ethical decision-making must rest on the best information available.

Influential ideas, textbooks, and analysis have emerged from the researchers in the Leavey School of Business Accounting Department. We’re pleased to give you a glimpse into the future of business decision-making in this issue.
