Chongho Kim joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Accounting in September 2020.

Professor Kim’s research examines how financial information is shaped by its producers’ characteristics and how it influences its users’ economic decisions, with a particular focus on its interrelated nature (e.g., across firms). His research combines theories from information economics with empirical methodologies in various manners, including structural estimation, to examine the interrelationship of financial information such as spillover effects of mandatory financial reporting and disagreement underlying analysts’ reports.

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor Kim worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers both as an audit associate in the manufacturing/construction practice and as a tax associate in the insurance practice. He is a Certified Public Accountant (Massachusetts).

Professor Kim received his BBA from Seoul National University, his MPA from the University of Texas at Austin and his PhD in Accounting from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
