Assistant Professor | Distinguished Teaching Fellow
Omri Even-Tov is an Assistant Professor in the Accounting Group. His research focuses on empirical capital markets and addresses issues related to the information content of earnings, corporate debt, corporate governance, information intermediaries, and mergers and acquisitions. His current research examines investor sentiment; the relation between stock prices and the cost of debt; information leakage prior to credit-rating changes; and the conflict of interest that exists between managers and shareholders over whether to accept acquisition offers.
Even-Tov has also been recognized for his significant accomplishments as an educator. In his second year as an Assistant Professor, he was honored with Berkeley Haas’ Earl F. Cheit Award for Excellence in Teaching for his MBA financial accounting course. He won the same award the following year for his teaching in the PhD program. In 2018, he was included on Poets & Quants’ list of the “World’s Best 40 Business School Professors Under 40.”
In collaboration with Prof. Jennifer Chatman, Even-Tov developed a new Extreme Leadership course in 2017 where students test their leadership skills on treks to the Andes and Patagonia. Even-Tov has also developed a number of television game show formats with his brother. Their formats have aired in multiple countries, including Brazil, the U.K., and Turkey.
