Panos N. Patatoukas is an Associate Professor with Tenure at U.C. Berkeley, Haas School of Business. Prior to joining Berkeley-Haas, Panos received his PhD, MPhil, and MA from Yale University, his MSc (with highest distinction) from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and his BA in Accounting and Finance (summa cum laude and valedictorian) from Athens University of Economics and Business.

Panos’ research focuses on capital markets research in accounting and finance and informs questions related to (i) financial statement analysis and corporate valuation, (ii) cross-industry economic links and value creation along the supply chain, (iii) the properties of financial accounting data and financial reporting practices, (iv) forecasting and nowcasting economic activity using financial accounting data, and (v) the measurement of economic activity in the national income and product accounts.

Panos’ research interests overlap with his teaching at Berkeley-Haas and his MBA course on Financial Information Analysis and Corporate Valuation has proven to be an invaluable source of ideas that are relevant to academics and practitioners.

Panos has won several prestigious research and teaching awards including the Earl F. Cheit Outstanding Teaching Award (twice, for 2012 and 2015), which is the highest teaching award bestowed upon instructors by the MBA students at Berkeley-Haas, the Schwabacher Award for Distinction in Research and Teaching, which is the highest honor for distinction in research and teaching bestowed upon tenure-track professors at Berkeley-Haas, and the Hellman Fellows Award, which is bestowed by the Chancellor of U.C. Berkeley for excellence in research.

Panos has been selected as the World’s Top 40 Under 40 Business School Professor by Poets & Quants and as the Top 10 Business School Professor under 40 by Fortune. For his record of accomplishments, Panos was designated in 2015 as the Barbara and Gerson Bakar Faculty Fellow at Berkeley-Haas.

Since his appointment at Berkeley-Haas, Panos has produced several top-tier publications in capital markets research (a complete publication list is available here). Panos is currently serving as a member of the MBA Program Committee and as the PhD Field Advisor for the Accounting Group at Berkeley-Haas.
