Biography
Hannu Schadewitz has been a Professor of Accounting since 2001. His primary areas of research interest include discretionary corporate reporting, international accounting, governance, and accountability. He joined the Turku School of Economics faculty in 2001, after being a member of a faculty of the University of Tampere School of Management. He was awarded his M.Sc. (1985), Lic.Sc. (1993), and Dr.Sc. (1997) degrees at what is now Aalto University School of Business. He has been published in academic and practitioner journals, and served as a leader responsible for a project funded by the Academy of Finland and as a junior fellow of the Academy. His teaching duties have included executive courses on financial statement analysis and corporate finance. Prior to his academic career, he gained professional experience as an internal auditor with the Finnair Group, a Finnish listed firm. Hannu’s current research analyses how the integration of new members into the European Union affects financial reporting transparency in those countries. Another area of focus is the role of international legal systems in accounting quality. While out of the office, he enjoys sharing time with his wife Päivi, their twins Juuli and Daniel, and Portuguese water dog Bernie, e.g. outdoors and travelling.
