Stephen Glaeser

Associate Professor of Accounting


McColl 4002, CB 3490 Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3490

Stephen Glaeser researches issues at the intersection of accounting and economics. He studies how innovative firms trade-off the benefits of communicating with investors against the costs of publicly revealing information about partially non-excludable innovations. He also is interested in how taxation affects real decisions and how imperfect information gives rise to agency conflicts.

He teaches courses in managerial and financial accounting.

Dr. Glaeser received the 2019 Best Dissertation Award for “The effects of proprietary information on corporate disclosure and transparency: Evidence from trade secrets” from the Financial Accounting and Reporting Section of the American Accounting Association.

The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics and Review of Accounting Studies have published his research.

He worked as an assistant vice president at Citi Hedge Fund Services and an internal audit team leader at Huntington National Bank.

He received his PhD in business administration from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and his MBA and BA from the Fisher College of Business at the Ohio State University.
