Accounting (PhD)

The Lundquist College of Business Doctoral Program in Accounting prepares students for careers as accounting faculty at a college or university that values scholarly research.

We believe this objective can best be attained by having faculty work closely with students and monitoring their progress throughout the program. The accounting program also encourages joint research projects among faculty and students and maintains a learning environment that is supportive of the student. Our primary focus is to train students to use economic reasoning to produce research of sufficient quality to warrant publication in a top academic journal.

Faculty expertise in the Accounting PhD program focuses on federal income taxation, disclosure of financial information, and use of accounting information in corporate governance.
