Jee Eun Shin is a doctoral student in the Accounting & Management Unit at Harvard Business School. Her main research interests are in managerial accounting: performance measurement, efficient contract design, internal control systems and also issues that deal with executive compensation. She is interested in how organizations can maximize performance by effectively taking into account employee, managerial, and organizational incentives whether in the form of explicit contracts or implicit mechanisms. She is also interested in how firms implement organizational goals other than profit maximization such as environmental concerns or corporate sustainability and how firms use their internal control systems not only to implement such goals but also to manage their risks sufficiently.
Jee Eun was born in Germany and moved to Korea after middle school. She received her B.A. in Economics from Yonsei University in 2011. An internship at Pricewaterhouse Coopers motivated her to decide to study Accounting further. She completed her M.S. in Accounting at Seoul National University in 2013 where she also worked as a research and teaching assistant.
