Abstract

This study examines the impact of CEO age and education level on the earnings management of listed Vietnamese real estate companies in the period from 2007 to 2016. The results show that CEO age has a negative correlation to earnings management. Older individuals are more conservative and ethical than younger CEOs, and firms managed by CEOs who pursue higher education are less likely to encounter earnings management. In addition, firm performance, CEO gender, firm size and CEO duality are correlated to earnings management. Our research therefore suggests that investors should pay more attention to CEO age when investing in a company.
