Description

The Faculty Lunch Series is an opportunity for twelve MBA students to join a Sloan faculty member for lunch and conversation. Ask faculty about their research, courses they’re teaching or planning to teach, how their work relates to what’s happening in the world - whatever interests you and your classmates. Professor Joseph Weber will host the first lunch of the Spring series on Thursday, February15th from 11:45am-1pm. Location is TBD but local to MIT Sloan.

Joseph Weber is the George Maverick Bunker Professor of Management and a Professor of Accounting at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Weber specializes in empirical work on the importance of accounting information in financial contracts. His recent work documents how an innovation in the commercial debt market—performance pricing—allows for more efficient contracting by reducing the expected renegotiation costs of the contract. Weber’s research has recently appeared in The Accounting Review, the Journal of Accounting Research, and the Journal of Accounting and Economics. When not conducting research, Weber teaches the core financial accounting class to first-year MBA students at MIT Sloan. Prior to entering academia, he worked for Price Waterhouse and AXA Financial.

Students who RSVP will be selected via randomized lottery, providing equal opportunity to those who have signed up. Please note that students who have not attended a Faculty Lunch Series will be given priority. Those students who are selected will receive an email 5 days before the event with details.

For questions, please contact Katy Bertman, kbertman@mit.edu.
