Take your practice experience to the classroom with the ADS Program

If you’re looking for a career change, the Accounting Doctoral Scholars (ADS) program may be for you. The ADS program addresses the demand for accounting faculty with experience in the areas of audit and tax. To date, the program has transitioned over 130 CPAs from practice to the classroom by providing scholars with financial assistance.

The deadline for this year’s program is September 6, 2019 for candidates who will begin Ph.D. programs in the fall of 2020. Candidates must have completed the GMAT with a score of 650 or higher (or equivalent GRE) and be CPAs, U.S. Citizens and have 3 years of practice experience. Selected candidates will be invited to attend the ADS Orientation Conference and will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from over 30 participating universities.
