Kathy Krawczyk, PhD

Professor Emeritus

Research Specialities

  • Financial accounting
  • Audit and tax impact of sustainability initiatives
  • Educational approaches to increase student awareness of sustainability

I incorporate sustainability topics into classes so MAC students can recognize that corporate decisions related to sustainability have very real financial accounting, tax, and auditing implications. Understanding the impact of sustainability on everyday operations will make these students better business advisors.
