Sangster wins prestigious international award

Professor Alan Sangster, chair in accounting history at the University of Aberdeen Business School has won the 2022 Outstanding Accounting Educator Award of the American Accounting Association.

Sangster is the first European-based winner of this 50-year-old prestigious international award.

He is currently the editor-in-chief of Accounting Education and many accountancy students would have read one of his eight textbooks!

On hearing he had received the award, he said: “It is a great honour to receive this, the highest award available to accounting academics from a jury of my peers, supported by past and present colleagues, and past students from across the world. I am very grateful to the American Accounting Association and to the PwC Foundation for their generosity and support.”
