Michael Tang joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Accounting in July 2012.

Professor Tang's research interests center on corporate disclosure as it relates to capital market participants such as financial analysts. He is particularly interested in investigating the rationales behind earnings guidance and how market participants understand these rationales. His current research explores guidance consistency, a new dimension of voluntary disclosure in accounting research.

Professor Tang received a B.A. in Finance from Fudan University. He received an M.S. in Applied Economics and a Ph.D. in Accounting from the University of Rochester.
