Accounting & Information Assurance (AIA)
The PhD program in accounting offers creative and motivated students the opportunity to push the boundaries of traditional accounting in research areas including voluntary disclosure, corporate governance, manager and investor behavior, accounting theory, and accounting’s role in supply chains, labor markets, and the economy. Doctoral students are required to complete the graduate-level microeconomics sequence and econometrics sequence at UMD’s Department of Economics, where prior success in undergraduate math classes is helpful. Students will also take a variety of accounting seminars that expose them to cutting edge accounting research and have the option to take additional graduate seminars in data analytics, finance, and other topics depending on their research interests.
