Professor Gold has over 23 years of university teaching experience in the fields of business law, accounting, and contemporary business ethics, including 13 years abroad in China, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.

His research interests are in the areas of comparative employment law, applied business ethics, and forensic accounting.

Prior to his academic career, Professor Gold practiced law in the area of commercial litigation (in the Washington D. C. law firm headed by former U.S. Senator Birch Bayh of Indiana) and, subsequently, in labor and employment law with the law firm of Jackson Lewis in Atlanta. He also undertook previously a graduate internship with the London solicitor’s firm of Gregory, Rowcliff & Milners in the U.K. Besides his legal experience, Professor Gold has also worked previously in public accounting, having been associated with both PricewaterhouseCoopers and Arthur Andersen & Co.

Professor Gold has also been active in civic organizations; notably, having served as the Alpha chapter president and chapter advisor, second national vice president and national board member, and the assistant executive director of finance for Kappa Alpha Psi international fraternity.
