Madhav Rajan --

Madhav Rajan is the Gregor G. Peterson Professor of Accounting at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. He is also Professor of Law (by courtesy) at Stanford Law School. Madhav joined Stanford University in 2001 and, since 2002, has served as the area coordinator for Accounting at Stanford GSB.

Madhav received his undergraduate degree in Commerce from the University of Madras, India, and his MS in Accounting, MBA, and Ph.D degrees from the Graduate School of Industrial Administration at Carnegie Mellon University. In 1990, his dissertation won the Alexander Henderson Award for Excellence in Economic Theory. After completing his doctoral studies, Madhav joined the faculty of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and was promoted to the rank of tenured Associate Professor in 1996, and Professor in 2000.

Madhav’s primary area of research interest is the economics-based analysis of management accounting issues, especially as they relate to the choice of internal control and performance systems in firms. His theoretical work has examined the optimal choice of information and incentive systems and the rationale behind observed internal accounting practices related to cost allocation and capital budgeting. Madhav has also carried out empirical research, using both archival and field data, on the role of incentive systems, quality-based programs, and buyer-supplier relations. In 2004, he received the Notable Contribution to Management Accounting Literature award for his work with Stan Baiman on “The Role of Information and Opportunism in the Choice of Buyer-Supplier Relationships.”

Madhav’s most recent work focuses on the internal control of multi-divisional firms. Topics include the efficiency of auction markets at allocating resources across divisions and the usefulness of bonus pools as a means for incorporating subjective measures of managerial performance. He is also currently involved in a research project that looks at whether and how accounting measures of performance can be used to infer the economic profitability of firms.

Madhav has served as an editor of The Accounting Review for the past six years. He is an associate editor for both the Accounting and Operations areas for Management Science, and for the Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance. He is a member of the Management Accounting section of the American Accounting Association and has twice been a plenary speaker at the AAA Management Accounting Conference.

Madhav has taught courses in managerial accounting at the undergraduate, MBA, and executive MBA levels. He also teaches an elective class in financial reporting to students at Stanford Law School. Madhav has won several teaching awards at Wharton and Stanford, including the David W. Hauck Award, the highest undergraduate teaching honor at Wharton. At Stanford, Madhav participates a variety of executive education programs including the flagship Stanford Executive Program and the National Football League Program for Managers. He has made invited presentations to the Labor Seminar of the National Football League Management Council and recently taught in the inaugural National Basketball Players Association Program.

    Very good book for graduate students and undergrads, especially for MBA students with aspirations to advance their managerial accounting skills.

    This is actually a good book for college work. It is very comprehensive and well organized. My professor only covered about 13 of the chapters in the book but I would imagine that the rest of them are just as good.
