Award recognizes early-career researcher's work on management accounting issues


Jasmijn C. Bol, Ph.D., associate professor of accounting at Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business in New Orleans, received the Best Early Career Researcher Award from the AICPA.

The $2,000 grant is given to the researcher with the best overall body of research in management accounting and whose research was completed within the first five years of joining a faculty.

Bol’s research deals with the use of accounting information for managerial decision-making, with a special focus on performance measurement and compensation systems.

The award is co-sponsored by the AICPA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and the Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA) and is granted in collaboration with the Management Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association (AAA).
