CoB Students Win Again


AIS logoThe Accounting Information Systems Educators Association sponsors a student paper competition to recognize outstanding work by graduate students in accounting information systems. Masters students from James Madison University have won this competition three times since 2010.

In the spring of 2012, Megan Cook & David LaRosa’s paper won the competition and had their paper published: “One Ticket to the Matinee Please: A Case Designed to Teach Students Accounting Software (Peachtree) Skills,” AIS Educators Journal, Vol. 6, 2011: 59-65 with M. Cook, D. LaRosa and D. Hayes.

Both Megan and David attended and presented at the AIS Educator Conference.

In 2011, four papers were submitted for consideration. Mary Antcliff, Ryan Doren and Lauren Harris’ paper won the competition. Their paper was published as well: "A Case to Provide Students Practice in Basic and Advanced Functions of IDEA Software," AIS Educators Journal, Vol. 7, 2012: 69-73 with M. Antcliff, R. Doren, L. Harris and D. Hayes. 

Ryan Doren attended and presented at the conference.

This spring, Paul Hong won the competition with his paper, “Separating Cats from Dogs Can Save You Trouble:  A Case Created to Enhance Students’ Abilities in Identifying Employee Red Flags and Incompatible Duties.” Paul will have to present at the conference in Laramie, Wyo.  

“Paul did a great job in the Independent Study course that he wrote the creative, separation of duties case paper for,” says Dr. David Hayes, who worked with Paul on the paper. “He was self-motivated and created a good working paper that he will be presenting at the AIS Educators Conference for comments.”

The Student Paper Competition is intended to recognize outstanding work by graduate students of accounting information systems. The student(s) submitting the winning paper receive a $1,000 cash award upon attending the AIS Educator Conference and presenting the paper.
