Curriculum Vitae
  • Biography
    Sanjay Gupta is the Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean of the Eli Broad College of Business.

    He joined the Broad College in 2007 as the Russell E. Palmer Endowed Professor of Accounting and chair of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems. He was appointed associate dean for the MBA and professional master's programs in July 2012.

    As associate dean, Gupta instituted curricular innovations, such as BroadWeeks, in the Full-Time MBA program, led a task force to evaluate the Weekend MBA program, and facilitated the launch of new master's programs in business analytics and management, strategy, and leadership. Average GMAT scores of entering students rose by 25 points during his tenure, and the MBA program increased its position in global and national rankings.

    Previously, he held several positions in the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, including the first Henry & Horne Professorship in Accountancy, Dean's Council of 100 Distinguished Scholars, and faculty director of the master of accountancy and information systems and the master of taxation programs.   He has been recognized by the Broad College's Executive MBA Class of 2010 with the Faculty Excellence Award and by the Arizona Society of CPAs with the Accounting Education Innovation Award and the Outstanding Educator Award. He was chosen by MSU for the Committee on Institutional Cooperation's (CIC) Academic Leaders Program and the CIC's Department Executive Officers' Seminar.

    Gupta's research focuses on corporate and individual tax policy issues. He has written extensively on corporate tax burdens, corporate responses to changes in tax incentives, and the interaction of taxes and financial reporting. He has published in leading tax and accounting journals including the National Tax Journal, the Journal of the American Taxation Association, the Accounting Review, the Journal of Accounting and Economics, the Journal of Law and Economics, and Tax Notes. His research on the political economy of corporate taxation and state corporate tax issues has been cited in the media, in court cases, and at public policy forums. Based on downloads and citations of his research, he ranks in the top two percent of all authors in the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). He is currently an expert witness for a state department of revenue.

    He has consulted for the Big Four public accounting firms, the U.S. government (Bureau of Economic Affairs and Internal Revenue Service), international consulting firms (Charles River Associates and Equity Methods), and Fortune 500 companies (Motorola and Sempra Energy). He serves on the University of Notre Dame Accounting Advisory Board and the MSU-CIBER Advisory Board. He has also served various business schools as part of their AACSB Accreditation Review Teams.
    Gupta received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University, a master of accountancy from Bowling Green State University, a bachelor of laws from Calcutta University in India, and a bachelor of commerce from the University of Mumbai. He holds non-practicing certifications as a CPA and a member of the Institute of Company Secretaries of India.
