Term Instructor

Claudia Roehl, Term Instructor of Accounting and Co-Chair of the MBA Department, brings to USF over ten years of experience as a Finance Director, V.P., Financial Analyst Officer and Senior Accountant, with research concentration in structured finance, and specifically, collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) and asset-backed securities (ABS). Her work aims to leverage and combine economic and accounting studies with her extensive knowledge of financial investment instruments. Drawing from her own explorations into credit analysis and public accounting, Roehl introduces students to the accounting information systems, tools, principles and procedures they'll need to help evaluate financial information, improve operating efficiency, and inform decision-making within businesses and organizations.
