Accounting Faculty

The global business landscape is constantly evolving — and we are constantly evolving with it, performing cutting-edge research and continually developing our approach to teaching. To that end, Goizueta’s Accounting group is currently addressing pressing questions in Accounting and related areas, including studies of fundamental issues such as ethics, disclosure language, investor trading decisions, the development and spread of international standards, and the impact of psychological forces in human decisions.

Our faculty’s research on fundamental questions in accounting based in the social sciences, especially economics and psychology, has been published in the leading academic accounting journals such as Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting and Economics, The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, Review of Accounting Studies, and Accounting, Organizations, & Society.

Hightower Faculty Lectures

The Hightower Seminars are supported by the Robert Edgar Hightower Lectureship Endowment Fund, memorializing the late Robert Edgar Hightower, Sr., one of the founders of Thomaston Mills. The lectureship fund was established in 1969 to bring distinguished professors from other institutions to Emory, principally in the field of Business Management, so outstanding visiting lecturers will share their knowledge and expertise with faculty, students, and the public.
