About

The Accounting and Information Systems program of the University of Wisconsin Madison prepares individuals for careers in research, teaching, and service at the university level.

Overview

About the Program

The Accounting and Information Systems program of the University of Wisconsin Madison stresses high-quality research at the frontiers of knowledge. A majority of the student’s time in the program is dedicated to developing, refining, and applying their research skills.

The accounting and information systems specialization has a strong track record of producing high-quality researchers and teachers. Our approach values collegiality; students work closely with faculty in an apprenticeship-type approach.

Student research is supported by faculty in four core areas and include archival and experimental research:

  • Auditing
  • Financial accounting
  • Managerial accounting
  • Tax

Accreditation

AACSB

Programme Structure

Students are required to complete three seminars in accounting research:
  • Introduction to Accounting Research
  • Behavioral Accounting Research
  • Archival Accounting Research

Students in our program develop a basic research background in both archival and behavioral empirical research. The program is one of the most balanced programs in the country in terms of support for different research methodologies and topics. Most students ultimately specialize in the research area and methodology that best suits their skills and research interests.

Both behavioral (including experimental economics) and archival methods are strongly supported. Students also develop specialization in a related field such as economics, psychology, or sociology.

Finally, students build a foundation in statistics that supports their research interests. Methodology courses in economics, agricultural economics, or psychology will generally provide a strong foundation.
