Accounting, Finance, & Economics


Members of the Accounting, Finance, and Economics faculty carry on active research agendas and have distinguished themselves by publishing in a wide variety of professional journals, including some of the most prestigious in their fields.  They have written about such current topics as home mortgage markets, Sarbanes-Oxley accounting standards, the potential impacts of privatized Social Security, Medicare costs, retirement planning, economic effects of the No Child Left Behind legislation, lottery funding for education and rising college tuition rates.  They also have researched such areas as how and why managers might decide to misreport financial data, how denominational market shares impact religious giving, and how much former baseball greats might have earned in today's free agent markets.
