AICPA Best Early Career Researcher Award Winner

By Deanna C. White

The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) was pleased to announce that Jasmijn C. Bol, PhD, associate professor of accounting, Freeman School of Business, Tulane University, New Orleans, was awarded the Best Early Career Researcher Award.

The award was presented at the annual meeting of the American Accounting Association (AAA) in National Harbor, Maryland, by Scott Moore, AICPA senior manager of college and university initiatives.
 
The $2,000 grant is given to the researcher with the best overall body of research in management accounting. Eligible research must have been completed within the first five years of joining a faculty.
 
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) in the United Kingdom and the Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA) cosponsored the award. It was granted in collaboration with the Management Accounting Section of the AAA.
 
Bol's award-winning research includes the use of accounting information for managerial decision making, with a special focus on performance measurement and compensation systems. 
 
"I am honored to have received the Best Early Career Researcher Award; it is a great recognition of my work. I am happy that the AICPA is willing to support young researchers like me," Bol said. "I like doing research on compensation systems because it relies on psychology, sociology, and economic theory. It also has a lot of direct implications for practice, which allows me to use my research in the classroom."
