Welcome to Professor Mark Bagnoli's Website


I am Professor Emeritus and Olson Chair in Management in the Accounting Academic Group in the Krannert School of Management. I also had a courtesy appointment in the Department of Economics in Krannert.

I use game theory to analyze problems in information asymmetries and rivalry, and I have published extensively in top journals in accounting, economics and finance, including the Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting & Economics, The Accounting Review, Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Political Economy, the RAND Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Economics and Management Strategy, Journal of Public Economics, Economic Theory, Journal of Law, Economics & Organization, Management Science, and Mathematical Finance, among others. My current research projects are focused on revising voluntary disclosures, corporate governance issues and accounting regulation.  I continue to work on sustainability including corporate decisions to issue green bonds.  I am a senior editor for Production and Operation Management and regularly review for accounting, economics and finance journals.

Most recently, I have taught Financial Statement Analysis in the MBA program and analytical seminars in financial and managerial accounting in the doctoral program.  Other MBA classes I have taught include Tax and Business Strategy, Managerial Economics, Corporate Finance I and Corporate Finance II.  I have also taught microeconomic theory, game theory and industrial organization at both undergraduate and doctoral levels.

Prior to joining Purdue, I taught at University of Michigan, Indiana University-Bloomington, Michigan State University and Western University.
