From the Director's Desk
Our students, faculty, and staff are looking forward to the start of the new academic year with all the attendant academic and social activities. We all enjoy seeing so many of our alumni, recruiters, and friends of the School back on campus. This year, we are holding our first ever “Back to School” Fisher School tailgate before a home football game.
Our students, faculty, and staff were very busy in the last year. We held numerous events, including the Women in Accounting Symposium, Professional Speaker Series, Beta Alpha Psi and Accounting Council events, and numerous recruiting activities. Students participated and excelled in national case competitions, and we continue to see impressive placements of our graduates in attractive career positions.
Accounting data analytics remains an important focus for us through our new faculty in this area and new analytics course work. We are in the process of preparing our Self-Study Report for our upcoming AACSB accreditation peer review visit in January 2024. We in the Fisher School are always engaged in continuous improvement to make sure our graduates are as well prepared as any in the world. But the every five-year AACSB review is very useful in that it requires us to summarize and report on exactly what we’ve done in the last five years, how we’ve achieved or not achieved our strategic goals, and to report our plans for the future.
You will find much good news in this report. Our students and faculty continue to make us proud with significant awards and recognition. Our faculty are extremely productive in research and teaching and contributions to the profession. The Fisher School undergraduate and graduate programs continue their high national rankings. Achieving high rankings is not our goal. Rather, we believe these high rankings simply reflect the quality of everything we do at Fisher, Warrington, and UF.
The contents of this report contain only a sampling of our activities over the last year. Please visit our website often to keep up with Fisher School news and learn even more about our students, faculty, programs, and alumni.
