Shortage of Ph.D.-qualified accounting faculty.

The American Accounting Association and the Accounting Programs Leadership Group has issued a report on the shortage of Ph.D.-qualified accounting faculty, whether that shortage is expected to grow and what can be done about it.

Some of the report's recommendations to meeting the demand for Ph.D.s include:

* Informing potential doctoral students about the opportunities that result from obtaining a doctorate in accounting;

* Providing financial support to Ph.D. students; and

* Diversifying teaching specialties.
