Accounting Professor Information
August 17th, 2017

Accounting professors plan a curriculum and teach accounting to students at the undergraduate, graduate, and other levels. They also assign and grade exams for the students. As with most professorships, a terminal degree is typically required (in this case, a doctoral degree in accounting). Accounting professors work for colleges and universities in offices and classrooms, and their hours vary according to their course load and course schedule. In addition to having the requisite skill set necessary to be a successful accountant (e.g. mathematics, knowledge of accounting principles and techniques, etc.), an accounting professor should also be able to teach and interact with students.

Job openings for accounting professors can be found on university career portals and sites, especially at business schools. Vacancies can also be found through typical channels like online job boards such as Indeed and Idealist.org. The interview will assess your professional experience as an accountant and your teaching ability. Questions may focus on your approach to teaching, ability to take constructive criticism, and attitudes towards the profession. Speaking skills and writing skill are both crucial to being a successful professor, and you may be asked to give a brief simple explanation of a complex accounting principle.

To prepare for an interview for an accounting professor, think about times when you have taught someone something. For instance, try to explain a complex accounting concept by breaking it down and putting it into terms that a novice could understand. Being that professors may be observed while they're giving a lecture (and subsequently given feedback), You may also wish to prepare an anecdote in which you were able to take constructive criticism and implement it immediately. Being a subject matter expert and an effective teacher and translator of knowledge are equally important, as is the ability to grow and improve.
