Hao Xue


Hao Xue joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Accounting in July 2013.

Professor Xue's research applies fully rational, economics-based models to observed accounting practices and institutions that conventional thinking and existing theories have difficulties explaining. In a recent paper studying financial analysts, Professor Xue reconciled independent analysts' disciplining role over affiliated analysts' biased forecasting behavior with the observed herding behavior among financial analysts.

Professor Xue received a B.A. in Accounting from Wuhan University in China, an M.S. from Fuhan University in China, and a Ph.D. in Accounting from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University.
