The Accounting Doctoral Scholars Program was created by the biggest accounting firms, in conjunction with the AICPA Foundation, to advocate for an increased number of accounting professors with real-world experience in audit and tax.
It is our belief that professionals with recent public accounting experience can add significant value to the university experience by obtaining their doctorate degrees and transitioning into an academic faculty role. As an accounting professor, you will go on to teach and research, mentor the next generation of students, and help to shape the future of our profession.
Following this career path can be a life-changing step, for yourself and for the minds you influence in the university setting. Please explore our Resource Center to learn more about how you can make a positive impact on the accounting profession for years to come.
