Jason Schloetzer

Associate Professor of Business Administration, Georgetown University


Professor Schloetzer is the William and Karen Sonneborn Term Associate Professor of Business Administration at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business. His research examines accounting phenomena from an economic perspective, often focusing on how management control systems impact firm performance. He is perhaps best known for his use of archival data collected from companies, having collaborated on research projects with firms in the oil and gas, heavy vehicle manufacturing, industrial coatings, and consumer products industries. His work has appeared in leading accounting journals, including The Accounting Review and Journal of Accounting Research, as well as well-regarded journals in finance and operations. He serves as Editor of Journal of Management Accounting Research, and is a member of the Editorial Advisory and Review Board of The Accounting Review. He has presented his work at numerous universities and conferences, including twice at the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. His current interests include field experiments, machine learning, and natural language understanding.

Schloetzer’s research has led to a fruitful collaboration with The Conference Board. This work includes a well-regarded annual research report on trends in CEO succession practices, as well as a handful of articles on current topics in corporate governance and hedge fund activism, some of which have been co-authored with Georgetown students. He frequently presents at events attended by C-suite executives and corporate directors of public and private companies, and is often quoted in media outlets including Bloomberg, Reuters, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

At the McDonough School, Schloetzer teaches courses on how to use accounting data to make decisions, with a particular emphasis on how to assess the profitability of products and services, and how to measure and create economic value. He teaches in the MBA, Executive MBA, and Executive Masters in Leadership programs. He has received two MBA teaching awards.

Schloetzer was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas, and earned his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Kansas, his MBA from The George Washington University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh.
