Doctoral students in departments other than Accounting and Information Systems can elect Accounting and Information Systems as a supporting area. The policy of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems with respect to a supporting area selection is that the student should:

  • Identify an Accounting and Information Systems department representative to serve on his or her advisory committee.
  • Work with the department representative to arrive at a tentative program of Accounting and Information Systems courses.
  • Submit the tentative program of courses to the Doctoral Committee of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems for approval.

The purpose of this policy is to establish departmental input into the planning of a supporting area in Accounting and Information Systems, and to protect students from unforeseen changes in their programs due to changes in department representatives serving on student advisory committees.
