AICPA Names Albrecht Outstanding Educator


The Institute honored W. Steve Albrecht, associate dean of the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University, at its spring council meeting, with the 2001 Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award for excellence in teaching and national prominence in the accounting profession.

A frequent speaker on forensic accounting and accounting education, Albrecht has published more than 80 articles on white-collar crime and business fraud in professional journals. He wrote or cowrote 18 books and monographs—one of which, Accounting Education: Charting the Course through a Perilous Future, addressed the need for restructuring accounting curricula.

Albrecht served on the AICPA task force that developed Statement on Auditing Standards no. 82, Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit. He is a former member of the board of regents of the Institute of Internal Auditors and the board of directors of the Utah state society.

He received his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Brigham Young University and an MBA and PhD from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
