Professor Jasmijn Bol represents the international focus at the Freeman school. Born and raised in the Netherlands, Professor Bol has studied at universities in The Netherlands, Spain and in the U.S., and she consistently presents her research to communities across the globe.
Professor Bol’s research focuses on subjectivity in compensation contracting, and she has authored and co-authored several articles that have appeared in prestigious scholarly journals. She has also earned awards for her teaching and research.
To Professor Bol, the multicultural environment of New Orleans feels more like home than other places in the U.S., and she enjoys Tulane in part because of the rewarding challenge of working to grow and develop the Master’s in Accounting program.
