André Aroldo Freitas De Moura
I hold a Ph.D. degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of Birmingham (UK), an MPhil in Business Administration and Controllership from the Federal University of Ceará (UFC), a BSc in Accounting from UFC (Magna Cum Laude), and a BTech in Security and Information Technology from the Catholic University of Brasília (UCB).
In 2008, I was the manager of a small family business, Casa Moura LTDA. In 2011, I worked as an Investor Relations analyst at M. Dias Branco SA. Since 2014, I have been providing consultancy in Equity Valuation, cost of capital, the impact of IFRS in Latin America, and statistical analysis. In 2016 and 2017, I taught at the University of Birmingham (UK) and was an Assistant professor at Swansea University (UK). I also provided consultancy in England between 2015 and 2017.
Since mid-2019, I co-founded a startup named Upthinkr, the first Venture Knowledge house in Brazil. As a co-founder and consultant at Upthinkr, I have been providing financial consultancy to startups in the Valuation area, as well as a member of the board of directors of these startups. In 2021 I co-founded Nossobb - a startup focused on making the journey of motherhood and fatherhood easier, offering a private social network (we call it the baby's room), an automatic gift list, scheduled delivery, etc.
I served as Associate Professor at FUCAPE Business School (ES) between 2018 and mid-2021, teaching undergraduate, MBA, Masters, and Professional Doctorate courses. I am currently a Career Professor at Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV) – EAESP. My research has been published in internationally recognized journals (ABS 3) such as the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, the Journal of International Accounting, Auditing and Taxation, and other national and international peer-reviewed journals. In research, I have expertise in the Brazilian, Latin American, and American markets, focusing on financial analysts, creditors, the impact of accounting standards, and their consequences for investors.
