The Management Accounting option at EKU was developed and made a reality largely through the efforts of Dr. Trish Isaacs. After talking with the members of the Bluegrass IMA (Institute of Management Accountants ), she and other members of the accounting faculty realized that there is a large demand for management accounting jobs.
The Institute of Management Accountants student night was held March 12, 2015. Eastern Kentucky University had ten students and two faculty members, Dr. Leslee Higgins and Dr. Ed Fenton, in attendance.
This semester’s faculty focus is Dr. Trish Isaacs, EKU Associate Professor of Accounting. She teaches Introduction to Financial Accounting, Tax I, and the Advanced Management Accounting Seminar at the graduate and undergraduate level.
