Jerold Zimmerman has now received all four major awards from the American Accounting Association (AAA). Zimmerman, who is professor emeritus of accounting, was presented the 2016 Outstanding Accounting Educator Award at the August 9 annual meeting in New York City. The PricewaterhouseCoopers Foundation sponsors the award. In 2004, he received the AAA Seminal Contribution to Accounting Literature Award (with former Simon professor Ross Watts, now at MIT), the 1979 and 1980 AICPA Notable Contribution Award (with Watts), and the 1978 American Accounting Association Competitive Manuscript Award.


The American Accounting Association (AAA) is very pleased to congratulate Jerold Zimmerman and Douglas F. Prawitt, recipients of the 2016 Outstanding Accounting Educator Award. This AAA award, which is sponsored by the PricewaterhouseCoopers Foundation, consists of unique glass art pieces, citations, and a $2,500 prize for each recipient. There is also an additional $2,500 donation given to the AAA on behalf of each recipient which will be used according to both Professor Zimmerman’s and Prawitt’s wishes. This award will be presented on Tuesday, August 9th at the 2016 AAA Annual Meeting in New York, NY.

Jerold Zimmerman is Professor Emeritus at the Simon Business School at the University of Rochester. He obtained a PhD in Business Administration at the University of California, Berkeley, after completing undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado. His research and teaching interests include financial and managerial accounting and organizational economics. Zimmerman received the 2004 American Accounting Association Seminal Contribution to Accounting Literature Award (with Ross Watts at MIT), the 1979 and 1980 AICPA Notable Contribution Award (with Ross Watts at MIT), and the 1978 American Accounting Association Competitive Manuscript Award. Zimmerman’s textbooks include Accounting for Decision Making and Control 9e (McGraw-Hill 2017), Managerial Economics and Organizational Architecture 6e with James Brickley and Clifford Smith (McGraw-Hill 2016), and Management Accounting in a Dynamic Environment with Cheryl McWatters (Routledge 2016). Zimmerman is a founding editor of the Journal of Accounting and Economics.

Douglas F. Prawitt earned his PhD at the University of Arizona and is the LeRay McAllister/Deloitte Professor of Accountancy at Brigham Young University (BYU). His research and teaching focus on auditing and professional judgment. Doug has published several award- winning articles in premier academic and professional journals, and has coauthored two leading auditing textbooks. He has won several research, teaching, and "best paper" awards, including BYU’s 2006 Award for Distinction in Graduate Education, BYU’s 2016 Marriott School Outstanding Faculty Award, the AAA Auditing Section’s 2014 Innovation in Auditing and Assurance Education Award, and the 2013 Deloitte Wildman Medal Award. Prawitt founded and leads BYU’s Accounting PhD Prep program, which has placed over 100 students into PhD programs over the past 15 years. He has chaired BYU’s promotion and tenure committee and BYU’s equivalent of a faculty senate. Finally, Prawitt served as a member of the AICPA’s Auditing Standards Board, and is currently a member of the COSO Board, which in 2013 released the first revision of its landmark 1992 Internal Control Integrated Framework.

The general criteria for the Outstanding Accounting Educator Award are based on contributions to accounting education from scholarly endeavors in teaching and research over a sustained period of time.

For 2016, the American Accounting Association and the PricewaterhouseCoopers Foundation are very pleased to give this award to Jerold Zimmerman and Douglas F. Prawitt.
