Accounting professors DJ Nanda and Peter Wysocki accepted The American Accounting Association's (AAA) 2014 Distinguished Contribution to Accounting Literature Award in August at the organization’s Annual Meeting in Atlanta.
The award, announced in April, was presented to Nanda and Wysocki for "Earnings Management and Investor Protection: An International Comparison,” a paper they co-authored with Christian Leuz at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.
The award was created to recognize accounting research of exceptional merit that has significantly impacted the discipline over a period of at least five years.
The American Accounting Association is the largest community of accountants in academia.
