Meier, Heidi Hylton; Kamath, Ravindra
Journal of Education for Business, v80 n5 p295-301 May-Jun 2005
In the 2002-2003 academic year, there were 526 accounting faculty members in the United States who held the title of named chair, distinguished professor, or fellow at their universities. In this study, the authors relied on J. R. Hasselback's "Accounting Faculty Directory 2002-2003" as the primary source for determining (a) personal profiles of the named professors, (b) the characteristics of the schools that provide these named professorships, and (c) information about the sponsors of these named professorships. The authors went beyond measures used in previous studies and examined other dimensions of named professorships in accounting to provide insight into the individuals and types of schools that donors are currently supporting.
