AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF FACULTY RECRUITING BY NON-DOCTORAL PROGRAMS IN ACCOUNTING

By Timothy J. Fogarty and Brian Hogan

Abstract

This paper provides a description of the relative success of non-doctoral programs at securing accounting faculty of choice. Using the logic that faculty from more prestigious doctoral programs possess more choice in the jobs they take, this paper accumulates the result of these decisions. Focusing on the non-doctoral sector, this paper provides a measure of how successful schools have been at recruiting faculty. These descriptive results are shown to be mostly consistent through time, and resistant to variations in measurement. Moreover, geographic proximity does not seem to be a strong alternative explanation. When only considering faculty employment decisions that occur immediately after doctoral training (rather than those later in academic careers) a not too different version of non-doctoral recruiting success emerges from the historical record. Key words: Accounting faculty, academic careers, institutional prestige, doctoral student placement, non-doctoral schools.
