George Maverick Bunker Professor of Management
Professor of Accounting
Joseph Weber specializes in empirical work on the importance of accounting information in financial contracts. His recent work documents how an innovation in the commercial debt market—performance pricing—allows for more efficient contracting by reducing the expected renegotiation costs of the contract.
Weber’s research has recently appeared in Accounting Research. When not conducting research, he teaches the Managerial Accounting elective, which is available to first- and second-year MBA students at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
Prior to entering academia, Weber worked for PriceWaterhouse and AXA Financial.
