Accounting Faculty Makes Top 100 List
Oct 05, 2011A reputation as an innovative educator and commentator won Dr. David Albrecht, accounting, a spot on a business news source's "Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting."
Each year, Accounting Today recognizes people who represent accounting's best. The list often includes leaders from the world's largest accounting firms, government officials and regulators. Few people in the academic field have made the list.
In a citation about the honorees, Accounting Today made note of Albrecht's blog, "The Summa" and his use of social media and simulation games, which "transform the way accountants learn."
Albrecht, an associate professor with the Offutt School of Business, is honored to receive the recognition.
"Bloggers and commentators to the accounting and auditing industries have not made the list until last year," he said.
As one of the honorees, Albrecht joins notables Mary Schapiro, chair of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; Doug Shulman, IRS commissioner; Jim Turley, global chairman and CEO of Ernst & Young; and Barack Obama, president of the United States.
