With generous support from the MAS PhD Student Fund, we are pleased to announce that the fifth annual MAS PhD Mentorship Program will take place during the 2024 IMA Doctoral Colloquium!

What is it?
Participating students meet with one assigned faculty mentor for 50 minutes during the IMA Doctoral Colloquium and receive feedback on a research proposal.

Why should students apply?
This is a fantastic opportunity to spend one-on-one time with more experienced researchers and receive valuable feedback on your research proposal.

Who is eligible?
3rd and 4th year PhD students.

How do students apply?
To apply, simply select the PhD Mentorship Program option when applying for the MAS Doctoral Colloquium and download and submit your research proposal template HERE by October 13, 2023. Applicants will be notified of admittance decisions by October 31, 2023.

What happens after students are accepted to the MAS PhD Student Mentorship Program?
Once admitted, students will be informed of the faculty mentors they are matched with.

Prior to the Colloquium, matched students and faculty mentors can discuss whether any updates have been made to the research proposal, the aspects of the proposal for which feedback is desired, and any other pertinent issues related to the proposal.

Dear Management Accounting Section (MAS) Members.

Welcome to the 2023/2024 year!

As part of this effort, we are pleased to invite you to join the MAS on LinkedIn (! Please use this platform to connect with the MAS community; to share teaching, research, and practice engagement resources; and to learn about our latest events.

The MAS started the new year with a great program put together by Todd Thornock and Curtis Hall (Co-Directors) at the 2023 AAA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Todd and Curtis organized 13 concurrent sessions and a panel session on “Teaching Management and Cost Accounting with Data Analytics”. We thank the authors who submitted 92 papers and the 130 volunteers who reviewed, discussed, and moderated for the Annual Meeting!
