Douglas A. Schroeder

Professor Schroeder joined The Ohio State University in 1986 after serving as a member of the Purdue University faculty for six years.

He has published papers in and served as a reviewer for numerous academic journals. His current scholarly interests involve analysis of accounting choice.

Accounting choice is the careful crafting of the accounting information system, taking into consideration the rich and highly disciplined structure of accounting and the uncertain environment in which strategic organizations operate. In a world of asymmetric information and costly transactions, properly designed accounting systems can be valuable as they can yield social welfare improvements.
