Accounting Ph.D. Student Invited to Attend Scholarly Conference

For release:  March 8, 2013

FCBE doctoral student in the School of Accountancy, Saad Murtuza Siddiqui, has been selected by a national scholarly committee to attend the American Accounting Association (AAA) 2013 Doctoral Consortium in Tahoe City, California. The Doctoral Consortium, which is will be held in June, is sponsored by Deloitte and J. Michael Cook. It is considered one of the most prestigious events offered by the AAA. The consortium is conducted by leading accounting scholars and provides a research forum for stimulating nationally ranked doctoral students to pursue research in significant emerging areas in accounting.

“Each year at the Consortium, we work to advance the dialogue among Ph.D. students and provide a forum for them to share ideas and best practices related to accounting research,” said Shaun Budnik, president of the Deloitte Foundation. “As members of the accounting profession continue to grapple with the shortage of accounting faculty and its impact on the future pipeline of well-trained talent, it is imperative to support today’s top doctoral candidates by giving them the opportunity to network with other Ph.D. students and prominent faculty in their areas of research.”

Siddiqui will teach in the area of taxation and his research is entitled “Market Frictions: Financing Decision and Firm Value Effects.”
