Office Address


Professor Gans Narayanamoorthy's research focuses on capital markets in accounting, with particular emphasis on market efficiency, litigation risk, insurance and bank accounting. He has published extensively in top accounting journals.

Professor Narayanamoorthy brings a rich professional background to Tulane. Before entering academia, he worked as an investment banker, managing public offerings of large corporations, including Fortune 500 companies.

As a teacher, Professor Narayanamoorthy enjoys working with doctoral students and has served on ten Ph.D. committees to date. He appreciates Freeman's collegial atmosphere, especially the rewards of working alongside like-minded colleagues who are engaged in research and excited about growing the program.


  • Professor Narayanamoorthy currently teaches the Graduate course Accounting for Business and Financial Risk and the Undergrad course Risk Management, Complex Contracts and Accounting. These courses at the intersection of risk and accounting are relatively unique to Freeman since not many peer schools offer them. He also teaches the PhD seminar in Empirical Accounting Research. Over his career, he has also taught classes on Advanced Financial Accounting, Financial Statement Analysis, Financial Accounting, Financial Reporting, Managerial Accounting and Financial Fraud. He brings research into the classroom so students can explore the field's most cutting-edge thinking.
