Feb 24, 2023

Dr. Benjamin Posmanick, assistant professor of finance, traveled with Alexander Obie, an undergraduate accounting student, to the Academy of Economics and Finance conference in Orlando, Florida, where Obie presented a paper co-authored with Posmanick and Dr. Bobby Chung, assistant professor of finance.

The paper examines the changes to corporate board composition caused by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and shows that the compositional changes did not improve the quality of financial statements.
