Montague wins American Accounting Association award


This is a guest post from the School of Business:

Norma Montague, assistant professor of accounting in Wake Forest’s School of Business, received the Issues in Accounting Education Best Paper Award at the AAA annual meeting in New York City on August 10. Montague, at the far left in the photo, co-authored “Witnessing Your Own Cognitive Bias: A Compendium of Classroom Exercises” with Rebecca G. Fay of East Carolina University. The award is presented to the best paper published each calendar year.

The case contains a collection of exercises that enables faculty members to teach students how to identify bias in their own judgements. It highlights five frequently occurring biases that may cloud business judgements, using psychology literature to spark student interest.

AAA is an organization of more than 7,000 members around the world and is celebrating its centennial year.

President’s Office sponsors Visiting Executive Program

Wake Forest’s Office of the President is sponsoring a new Visiting Executive (VX) Program in partnership with the College, School of Business, and Office of Personal and Career Development. The purpose of the program is to connect industry leaders with students across the university. The first VX will be alumnus David Friedersdorf (’87), an entrepreneur in health care transformation. Friedersdorf will be collaborating with history professor Robert Hellyer and his Modern Japanese History class.

David N. Farr (’77, P’07), chairman and CEO at Emerson Electric, will visit the School of Business this fall, and Craig Donaldson (P’14, P’16), a founding partner of HG Capital, will collaborate with finance professor Bill Marcum.

“The VX Program offers opportunities to hear from accomplished leaders and experts whose wisdom gained through experiences of striving, perseverance, success and failure in the real world can help our students prepare for life after graduation,” said President Nathan O. Hatch.

For more information, contact Molly Lineberger at or (336) 758-5297.
