Accounting Faculty Among Best In Research Output

2020 BYU Accounting Research Productivity Ranking

Nebraska's School of Accountancy is No. 2 in Big Ten in the latest ranking, placing it in the top 15 percent for faculty research among over 600 national and international institutions measured. Nebraska earned the recognition based on the total research output of the school's faculty in the top 12 peer-reviewed accounting journals. The rankings are broken down into three distinct time periods—the past six years, the past 12 years and all publications since 1990—so that each year’s ranking builds on the previous year’s number.

Lifting the Veil: The Price Formation of Corporate Bond Offerings
Journal(s): Journal of Financial Economics
Published: June 30, 2021
CoB Author(s): Liying Wang
Dr. Liying Wang, assistant professor of finance at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Business, examines how the corporate bond offering price evolves in the primary market, where securities are created, before underwriters, who determine risk levels on transactions, allocate the bonds to investors. While a popular view is that corporate bonds are easy to price so that underwriters know all information they need, her research suggests this is not the case.
Strategic Estimation of Asset Fair Values
Journal(s): Journal of Accounting and Economics
Published: August 1, 2018
CoB Author(s): Stanislava Nikolovac
When estimating the fair value, the unbiased estimate of the potential market price, some managers may inflate these numbers when self-estimated due to the unobservable nature of the value. Insurers who need to appear financially healthy often choose to self-estimate their fair value, which research suggests, may need regulation that is more detailed.

Journal(s): The Review of Financial Studies
Published: June 8, 2018
CoB Author(s): Julie Wu
Dr. Julie Wu, assistant professor of finance, investigates the function of acquirer shareholder voting during mergers and acquisitions. This study shows acquirers with low institutional ownership, high deal risk and high agency costs are more likely to bypass shareholder voting, leading to lower announcement returns and higher offers.
