Who Will Teach Our Future CPAs?

The Accounting Doctoral Scholars program has been created to help reverse a shortage of Ph.D. accounting faculty in U.S. colleges and universities.

The program seeks to encourage persons with significant public accounting experience to become PhDs in the audit and tax disciplines.

To date, more than 70 of the country’s largest firms, along with several state CPA societies, have committed a total of $15 million to the program.

The MSCPA Board of Directors voted at it's last meeting to contribute $25,000 to the Accounting Doctoral Scholars program. We are really happy to do our part to help this crisis in accounting education.

The program will be administered by the AICPA Foundation. Read the press release. For further information contact ADSprogram@aicpa.org, 919-402-4524 or visit www.adsphd.org.
