Fun fact: I actually really love accounting!

Professor you most admire: My dear friend, colleague, co-author, mentor, and PhD dissertation committee chair while I was at Stanford: Prof. Mary E. Barth.

Most memorable moment as a professor: At the end of the last session of my most recent fall class, all my students stood up and applauded for about one minute. They wrote and gave me a card with blessings which I found very meaningful.  It overwhelmingly touched me.

“If I weren’t a b-school professor…” I would have probably continued my spiritual journey in the Far East, where I practiced Vipasana meditation and learned Buddhism for a few years in rigorous and silent Buddhist monasteries.

Students say:

“You were able to effectively take an admittedly dry subject (and one I was not particularly looking forward to) and turn it into a great learning experience.  I appreciate all the time and dedication you put into the class, it truly shows.” 

“I want to thank you for teaching me one of the most useful lessons in my life. I used to consider accounting a boring bookkeeping process, however, your class has completely changed my perspectives on this topic.” 

“Thank you very much for an excellent introductory course in Financial Accounting. Although I did not have any background in accounting prior to your class, I thoroughly enjoyed the class and learned a lot.”

“Thanks again for a great class this term!  You’ve opened my eyes to the wonders of accounting.”

“Thank you so much. I really enjoyed your class, and I don’t think you could have made accounting any more interesting and fun!”

“Thanks once again for a great class.  We had fun, learned a lot, and it was very clear how much time and passion you put into the curriculum!”

“Your enthusiasm for accounting is contagious and we all appreciate the effort you put into making sure we got the most possible out of your class.”

“Thank you so much for a great accounting class. You made the material come alive with your expertise, enthusiasm, dedication, and humor! I am so excited about accounting!”

Financial statements and macro forecasting; earnings and GDP; inflation and financial reporting: Haas’ Yaniv Konchitchki focuses on distilling practical insights from accounting information. Thanks to the applicability of his research, Konchitchki has been invited to dozens of conferences and presentations. Inside the classroom, his impact is just as profound, demonstrated by popularity among students and several awards for teaching excellence and innovation. Before he went into academia, he was a senior financial consultant at PwC and a senior investment and economic expert for the Israel Securities Authority.
