Fogelman Faculty Answer Interesting Research Questions
The Fogelman College of Business and Economics is composed of a research-active faculty which allows our school to stay abreast of cutting-edge information and knowledge dissemination. Take a look at some of their most recent interesting findings:
Did you know that the “Dark Triad” personality factors (narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy) are attracting increased interest in explaining many types of fraud?
Dr. Charles Bailey, Professor of Accountancy, discusses these findings in an article
forthcoming in the July 2015 issue of The Accounting Review titled “Psychopathy, Academic Accountants’ Attitudes towards Unethical Research Practices,
and Publication Success.” Additionally, this paper won the Innovative Research Award
at the 18th Annual Accounting Ethics Symposium.
Did you know that most stocks in the U.S. are traded on multiple stock exchanges, but about 14.5% of trading occurs in non-exchange computer systems called “dark pools?”
Dr. McInish and his coauthors discuss this trading shift in their paper, “Trading Rules, Competition for Order Flow and Market Fragmentation,” forthcoming in the Journal of Financial Economics.
