LSU ACCOUNTING PROFESSORS LECTURE IN TAIWAN
Professors Agnes Cheng and Larry Crumbley of the accounting department at LSU’s College of Business presented a series of lectures across Taiwan during the month of June. The pair was invited by Professor Ping-Yung Chiu of the National Yunlin University of Science & Technology and onetime controller of the Asian Development Bank.
Cheng, the Ourso Distinguished Chair of Accounting, is originally from Taiwan and presented lectures at several locations titled “The Role of Accruals in Predicting Future Cash Cows” and “Comprehensive Income and Cost of Capital.”
“I am impressed by the development in accounting research in Taiwan,” Cheng said. “I believe we will see more papers from Taiwanese scholars in top international accounting journals.”
Crumbley, who holds the KPMG PeatMarwick Endowed Professorship, offered lectures entitled “Corporate governance and Compensation” and “Research on Forensic Accounting.” His tour of Taiwan marks the 115 th country he has visited.
“The speaking tour was both exciting and fascinating as we interacted with the energetic students and faculty across Taiwan,” Crumbley said.
As part of their tour, both professors spoke at the Taiwan University of Technology and the Chaoyang University of Technology.
