Biography

Johnny Jermias worked for several years in Indonesia as an auditor before continuing his education at the University of Waterloo, where he earned his PhD in 1996. He joined SFU Business as a visiting scholar in 1999 from the University of Persada Indonesia where he was vice-director of the graduate management program. In 2001 he became an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the Beedie School of Business. Johnny, who teaches advanced management accounting, switched to academia because he wanted to teach. "I always find that students are a source of inspiration," he says. His research interests focus on strategic management accounting. "I like the inter-relationship between a company's strategy and how it matches up with considerations like organizational structure, control systems and the types of management accounting systems they use," says Johnny. "It's interesting to see how the fit among these variables can affect company performance." He also studies how heuristics and biases influence managers in their decision-making processes.

Research Interests

Judgment in Decision Making, Strategic Management Accounting, Performance Measurement and Productivity, Innovation in Management Accounting, Corporate Governance, and Corporate Disclosure.
