Research Expertise: Accounting, response of nonprofit organizations to economic incentives

Professor Robert Yetman is an expert on corporate tax, financial accounting, income tax, U.S. and international financial accounting, and nonprofit accounting and tax issues. His research concentrates on the effect of taxes on business decisions and the response of nonprofit organizations to economic incentives.

Yetman recently examined why some tax-exempt charities choose to be taxed on their unrelated business income and how such behavior is not always driven by the desire to maximize profits. He has lectured on cost accounting at executive education programs for wine industry professionals.

Yetman received his Ph.D. in accounting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his M.S. in accountancy from San Diego State University. He holds a B.S. in engineering from Marietta College.
