Elizabeth Gutierrez

Assistant Professor, School of Accounting

Most studies about insider trading focus on the firm level, but Dr. Gutierrez’s empirical research looks at the macro level. She sheds light on the information the inside traders are using to make strategic decisions for investment.

Knowing I can make a difference in the life of a student is really motivating.
