Having earned a PhD in finance and strategic management (from the public university ranked #1 in 2023 by the Wall Street Journal), I conduct and publish academically rigorous research related to the analysis and valuation of investment interests. Research examples include:

  • Finding that CEOs in venture capital-backed IPO firms pay themselves more once their governance changes fundamentally (important to keep in mind when analyzing peer companies)
    • Jarosiewicz, V. E. (2019). CEO Compensation after Harvester Director Departure. Quarterly Journal of Finance9(01), 1940004. Available at https://ssrn.com/abstract=3042780.
  • Re-examining the popular (but circular) logic that the executives of different companies have different “styles” that can be discerned solely from financial metrics, and finding that it is not supported by the evidence (important to keep in mind when appraisal reports point to financial metrics as evidence of managerial skill)
    • Jarosiewicz, V. E., & Ross, D. G. (2023). Revisiting managerial “style”: The replicability and falsifiability of manager fixed effects for firm policies. Strategic Management Journal44(3), 858-886. Available at https://ssrn.com/abstract=2933162.
