Associate Professor, Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Paige Ouimet has researched ESOP (employee share ownership plans) and their impact on labor productivity and wages. Her current research is concentrated at the juncture of finance and labor economics. She is interested in in how decisions studied in finance impact employee stakeholders – specifically how those effects are reflected in firm performance and, hence, corporate finance decisions. Dr. Ouimet also works in the field of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate financing decisions. Her work has been published in the Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies and Journal of Financial Economics. Dr. Ouimet worked at The Center for Clean Air Policy, an independent, nonprofit think tank working on climate and air quality policy at the local, U.S. national and international levels. She received her PhD and MBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and her BA from Dartmouth College.
