This semester’s installment of the Emanuel Saxe Distinguished Lecture in Accounting will take place on Monday, Oct. 22 in the Newman Conference Center, Seventh Floor, 151 East 25th Street at 5 pm. Shyam Sunder, the James L. Frank Professor of Accounting, Economics, and Finance in Yale University’s School of Management, will deliver this year’s lecture, entitled “Adverse Effects of Accounting Uniformity on Practice, Education, and Research.”
Each year, the Stan Ross Department of Accountancy, in collaboration with the Baruch College Fund, sponsors a series of public speeches on challenges in the accounting field. The lectures were established to honor Emanuel Saxe (’23), Dean and Professor Emeritus at Baruch College, formerly Morton Wollman Distinguished Professor of Accountancy, and University Distinguished Professor.
