William B. Tayler, an associate professor of accountancy in the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University, recently received The Institute of Management Accountants Research Foundation Emerging Scholar Award, which recognizes an exceptional manuscript of a single scholar in management accounting.
IMA is the worldwide association for accountants and financial professionals working in business.
“We’re pleased to recognize the accomplishments of Dr. Tayler, whose work has made significant and lasting contributions to advancing the management accounting research field,” said Vairam Arunachalam, IMA Research Foundation chair.
Tayler received a plaque, a $2,500 cash prize and complimentary registration to IMA’s 94th Annual Conference & Exposition in New Orleans next June.
After receiving both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting at BYU, Tayler completed a master’s degree and a doctorate in management at Cornell University.
