The University of Rochester has announced a national award to recognize a professor’s contributions to the field of accounting.
Jerold Zimmerman, professor emeritus of accounting at the Simon Business School, was presented Tuesday with the 2016 Outstanding Accounting Educator Award.
The award is sponsored by the PricewaterhouseCoopers Foundation. The criteria for the award are based on contributions to accounting education from scholarly endeavors in teaching and research over a sustained period of time.
Zimmerman has received all four major awards from the American Accounting Association.
In 2004, he received the AAA Seminal Contribution to Accounting Literature Award, the 1979 and 1980 AICPA Notable Contribution Award and the 1978 American Accounting Association Competitive Manuscript Award.
Zimmerman is a founding editor of the Journal of Accounting and Economics.
