Amy B. Murphy, director of accounting graduate and online programs, was recently named the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants’, or ASCPA, 2017 Outstanding Accounting Educator. ASCPA is the statewide, professional membership organization representing more than 6,500 Alabama CPAs in public practice, industry, government and education.

The recipient of the Outstanding Accounting Educator Award is recognized for excellence in teaching and active involvement in the accounting profession.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized for the love and passion I have for Auburn’s accounting programs and our great profession,” said Murphy. “Being a part of Auburn University and the accounting profession was made possible by Dr. Gary Waters and Dr. Wayne Alderman. In 1986, Dr. Waters encouraged me to major in accounting, and Alderman offered me the opportunity to return to Auburn in 1994 to serve as the Master of Accountancy, or MAcc, Program Director and teach accounting.”

In addition to serving as director of accounting graduate and online programs, Murphy teaches ACCT 2110 Principles of Financial Accounting, ACCT 3110 Intermediate Accounting I and ACCT 3810 Professional Development in Accounting while also serving as faculty advisor to the Financial Leadership Society, a student organization for freshmen, sophomores and first-semester juniors in accounting.
