Fisher's undergraduate accounting program moved from ninth place to sixth place in a survey of accounting educators nationwide. The 2010 Public Accounting Report also ranked the MAcc program 10th and the doctoral program 14th in research and 10th in teaching. Last year, Fisher's PhD program ranked 17th for teaching and 18th in research.
An independent newsletter of the accounting profession, the publication also added two new doctoral classifications this year. In those categories, the survey asked respondents to rank PhD programs based on their ability to turn out both professors strong in teaching and in research.
The newsletter's survey was completed by more than 1,700 accounting educators. "The Annual Survey of Accounting Professors school rankings seeks to measure accounting professors' perceptions regarding the accounting programs they feel most consistently turn out students capable of some day attaining partner status. It is not intended to be scientific," according to the publication.
"These rankings reflect our colleagues' view that we offer high-quality accounting programs and that we have an outstanding faculty," said Richard Dietrich, professor and chair of the Department of Accounting and MIS. "It is nice to know that accounting scholars across the country recognize our faculty's accomplishments and hold Fisher's programs in high regard."
Unfortunately, it is a factor that homeowners have no control over.
Researchers found that mortgages owned by lenders were 26 to 36 percent more likely to be renegotiated than very similar mortgages that the original lenders sold to other companies, which turned them into securities.
"Homeowners don't have a say in whether their bank sells their mortgage or not, but that can have a significant impact on whether their loan is renegotiated," said Itzhak Ben-David, co-author of the study and assistant professor of finance at Fisher.
"From the homeowners' perspective, whether their mortgage is traded among investors is completely outside of their control."
Other co-authors of the study are Sumit Agarwal, Gene Amromin and Douglas Evanoff from the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank, and Souphala Chomsisengphet from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
The research was accepted to the Journal of Financial Economics and will be published in a future print edition. Read More >>
