Welcome to my website. My name is Aytekin Ertan. I am an assistant professor at the London Business School. I joined LBS in 2014 following my doctoral studies at Yale University. 


My research focuses on the real effects of information disclosure and reporting practices, especially in the banking sector. My papers also examine the role of accounting in corporate and SME credit markets.


I teach financial reporting in the Executive MBA programme and the empirical accounting research seminar (on financial intermediation and debt contracting) in the Ph.D. programme.


Outside of work and family, I enjoy cooking, history, board games, safaris, and mountain climbing.
