Mission StatementIn 1971, Vincent C. Ross established and endowed this research institute. As such, we are the oldest continuous research center at the Stern School of Business. Consistent with Vincent C. Ross' goals, we have created an environment where research flourishes and where executives, accountants, attorneys, regulators, and academics work together. Over the years, the Institute has organized and sponsored distinguished lectures, executive education programs, professional conferences, and roundtables. Our conferences and roundtables are done on a stand-alone basis, and also in collaboration with other research centers at Stern and at the NYU Law School. The Vincent C. Ross Institute currently funds student scholarships at the Stern School of Business. Our focus is on exploring the interlink between accounting and other current business areas, such as finance, ESG, corporate governance, fintech, and emerging technologies.
The Center was made possible through an endowed gift from alumnus Vincent C. Ross (C'21).
