Riddha Basu is an assistant professor of Accountancy at the George Washington University School of Business. His research interests focus on examining interactions between information intermediaries and a firm’s financial disclosure and economic choices, with a particular interest in the role of credit rating agencies. He uses empirical archival methodologies to answer key questions that broaden our understanding the role played by information intermediaries in a firm’s decision-making process. His goal as a professor is to develop students’ understanding of accounting at an intuitive level, using real world examples, and also engage students in conversation in class.
