Professor of Accounting
Ashbel Smith Professor

Dr. Stanimir Markov focuses his research on information intermediaries, corporate disclosure and capital markets.

Before returning to UT Dallas in fall 2018, he taught for five years at Southern Methodist University, where he was the Marilyn and Leo F. Corrigan Research Professor and twice received the Edwin L. Cox School of Business Research Excellence Award.

He previously taught at UT Dallas from 2007-2013. His classes focus on financial accounting and statement analysis.

“My research explores how information — accounting and non-accounting — is produced and used by information intermediaries and capital markets. This is important because without quality information, fair and efficient markets cease to exist and managerial opportunism becomes rampant.”

Markov is widely published in a variety of professional publications. He is associate editor of Management Science and the Journal of Accounting, Auditing & Finance. He also serves on the editorial board of The European Accounting Review.

He has a PhD in business administration from the University of Rochester, where he also earned his master’s degree in applied economics. Markov also has an MBA from Georgetown University and a master’s degree in international economic relations from the University of National and World Economy in Bulgaria.
