Professor of Accounting Awarded $10,000 Grant(7/26/2012) - Gim Seow, an associate professor of accounting at the University of Connecticut School of Business, was awarded a $10,000 grant by the PwC Foundation this summer.
Dr. Seow will be using this grant to develop an International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) component to his financial accounting theory course, offered to students in the online Master degree in Accounting (MSA) program at the University of Connecticut. He will also be working on a research project that examines the adoption of IFRS in different stock exchanges across the world.
The award is part of the PwC INQuiries program, whose goal is “to help domestic colleges and universities incorporate important updates and issues facing the accounting profession into their curricula.” Grants from the PwC INQuiries program also support faculty research in the accounting field.
PwC donated $520,000 to 52 universities in the U.S. this year and has contributed more than $59 million to educational institutes since 2007.
