Hello everyone! I am very excited to be a new addition to the Department of Accountancy from August 2016. I earned a Ph.D. in Accounting from Temple University in 2016, and a M.B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2009. Before returning to school, I worked at the HSBC Bank in Korea in the Financial Control Department where I carried out reporting work (both internal and external) and internal control for four years.
I am very delighted to join CityU because the faculty at CityU are very productive and collegial, and I was confident that I would enjoy working with them.
My primary research interest is in corporate governance, including executive compensation, audit committees, and the top management team. Not surprisingly, my teaching area is in corporate governance!
My goal as an educator is to encourage my students to learn through class discussion, to critically evaluate different viewpoints, and to link the materials with the real world, so that they are better prepared for their future careers. I intend to interact frequently with the students in and outside the classroom to facilitate their learning.
My interests apart from research are cooking innovative new dishes and traveling. In both aspects, I believe CityU and Hong Kong is a great place to be!
My name is Wenfeng Wang. I approach life with an open mind and grateful heart, and my underlying drive is to explore, learn, appreciate, and potentially contribute to society. In June 2016, I completed my doctoral study in accounting at University of Maryland College Park.
It is my great honor to join the family of the Department of Accountancy at CityU, to further pursue my academic career. CityU is a globally-renowned, fast-rising higher education institution, emphasizing both cutting-edge research and high-quality teaching. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to join CityU.
My current research is aimed at answering the question of how financial reporting quality affects resource allocation efficiency in the economy, and the determinants and consequences of an audit market structure.
I hope my teaching will help students not only with their professional study but also (more importantly) with their personal development. I would be very satisfied if some years later when my students recall their time at college they find they did learn something from my class.
In my spare time, I like to read, watch movies, travel, and participate in many outdoor activities such as hiking and playing basketball. Hong Kong is an exciting place, and the Department of Accountancy at CityU especially so. I am looking forward to my time at CityU!
