Dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Accounting
Madhav Rajan joined the Chicago Booth faculty on July 1, as dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Accounting.
His primary area of research interest is the economics-based analysis of management accounting issues, especially as they relate to the choice of internal control and performance systems in firms. He has carried out analytical, empirical, and field-based research on the role of information in incentive contracting, the value of nonfinancial and subjective performance measures, and the structural properties and usefulness of common financial ratios.
Before joining Booth, Rajan spent 16 years on the faculty of the Stanford University Graduate School of Business where he held various administrative roles and oversaw the MBA program. Previously, he spent 11 years on the faculty at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
