Profile

Dr. Jeffrey Cohen's major research streams are in the areas of corporate governance, auditor independence, corporate social responsibility and in accounting and business ethics. His work is behavioral based using controlled experiments, surveys, and interviews. His teaching interests focus on auditing, management and cost accounting, and strategic cost management.

He believes that our distinctive competency as educators is to create a culture where we constantly raise questions. As Tolstoy once wrote, "The only thing that we can know, is that we know nothing and that is the highest flight of reason."
