Professor Partha Mohanram’s research focuses on the valuation of stocks, corporate disclosure and earnings management. His research has examined the valuation of Internet stocks, the calculation of cost of capital and the use of fundamental information in the valuation of growth stocks. He has also studied the impact of Regulation Fair Disclosure (FD) on the functioning of financial analysts. He is currently working on a paper that asks whether managers manipulate earnings around large option exercises in an attempt to inflate their compensation.
Mohanram teaches financial statement analysis, with an emphasis on exposing students to the potential manipulations of financial statements. Prior to joining the Columbia faculty, Mohanram was a faculty member at the Stern School of Business of New York University from 1998 to 2003.
