Mario Schabus

 

Mario joined the University of Melbourne in September 2017 as Senior Lecturer. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Amsterdam in 2017, and was visiting student at the University of Michigan.

He obtained a MSc in Accountancy and Control at the University of Amsterdam and a BSc in Business Administration at the University of Graz. Mario's research interests lie in corporate governance and regulation. They span several streams in financial and managerial accounting, as well as corporate finance. For example, in his dissertation he investigates how board networks facilitate the accuracy of firms' forecasting. In his latest publication he examined the financial and economic benefits of ties to the US-president. In two other recent projects, he examine questions of organizational architecture (i.e., budgeting, incentive contracting, and performance measurement), with specific focus on the role of firms' finance function. He published in the Journal of Financial Economics and The Accounting Review. He teaches Management Accounting in Uni Melbourne's Masters of Accounting program, as well as teaches in the Ph.D. program. Mario serves as ad-hoc reviewer for The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Review and Journal of Accounting and Public Policy.
