Professor Frank Moers is Professor of Management Accounting & Control and Scientific Director of the Graduate School of Business and Economics at Maastricht University.
Frank holds a M.Sc. (Economics and Business Administration) and a Ph.D., which he received from Maastricht University in respectively 1996 and 2001. He was a Visiting Professor at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and is currently a Full Professor at Maastricht University.
The majority of his research focuses on the relevance of performance measurement and incentive systems for (understanding) some of the most important decisions made within firms, i.e., the management of both (in-)tangible assets (capital investments and R&D) and human capital. In particular, he has examined problems associated with internal capital markets, such as inefficient capital allocation among divisions, as well as problems associated with internal labor markets, such as the well-known Peter Principle. In their core, these problems are performance measurement problems and Moers has exploited his expertise in this area to examine these issues.
He furthermore focuses on the interdependence between asset pricing in the capital market and decision-making within firms by examining the interactions between performance measurement and incentives within firms, disclosure, and regulatory activities.
