My name is Manuel Olivera Andrade. I am biologist with economy studies. Actually, I'm MA student in Economic Development in La Paz, Bolivia. I have experience in sustainable development, biodiversity planning and economic development of natural resources. I am actually working on a new NCCR' s project about lithium perspectives in Bolivia, particularly its sustainable development in order to improve the local economies. I would like to keep in contact with the specialists in this topic around the world.
I have over 20 years experience in finance, accounting and auditing, management consulting, teaching and research. My primary area of expertise is in financial modeling and econometric analysis. I've been engaged in such matters by firms in the manufacturing, processing, technology, real estate, and financial services industries; as well as by financial institutions and their regulatory agencies. My financial models and econometric analyses have been used in the following contexts:
:: equity valuation and strategic planning
:: merger and acquisition analysis and structuring
:: negotiating private debt and equity placements
:: financial planning and performance measurement
:: developing corporate governance systems
:: capital restructuring and reorganization
:: commercial damages litigation consulting
Most recently my work has focused on assisting mid-market U.S. and Brazilian businesses in analyzing and estimating demand in Brazilian product markets, planning and developing Brazilian operations, optimizing business structure to minimize supply chain costs, and raising debt and equity capital.
My research focuses primarily on how accounting information is used in equity markets, how managers make optimal financial reporting decisions, and recently on how economic conditions affect cross-border business development and investment. My research has been published in Review of Accounting & Finance and Managerial Finance, and I've written a number of monographs and articles included in professional publications and periodicals. I've also taught a wide range of courses including financial accounting and analysis, managerial accounting and decision-making, corporate governance, asset pricing theory and business valuation at Michigan State University, University of Illinois at Chicago, Purdue University, Indiana University, and most recently at Steinbeis University.
I was was graduated from Indiana University with a B.S. in 1981, and from Michigan State University with a Ph.D. in 1999.
