The Relationship Between Management And Financial Accounting As Professions And Technologies Of Practice., Alan J. Richardson

Odette School of Business Publications

This Chapter explores the suggestion to unify financial and management accounting both as professions and technologies of practice.

The challenge for the profession is to maintain the integrity of management accounting as a technology of practice in the face of renewed professional hegemony of financial accounting.

Business As Usual: Ethics As Mundane Behavior, And The Case Of Target Corporation, Jon A. Hess

The Risks And Rewards Of Serving As A Department Chair, Jon A. Hess

Jonathan A. Hess

The department chair is a boundary position between the university administration and the faculty; a chair inhabits both worlds, but resides fully in neither. Chairs are charged with numerous responsibilities and often lack full authority needed to accomplish their ...
