Message from the Department Head

Dan Murphy. Welcome to the inaugural research edition of Inside AIM. Research plays a vital role in the life of our department and in the furtherance of our mission. The goal of this and future research editions is to highlight the contributions made by our faculty and doctoral students towards the greater understanding of accounting and information management research.

To facilitate access to our faculty’s research, we have added a faculty research portal to our department’s website that can be accessed at http://bus.utk.edu/aim/research/index.htm.

This site will be updated regularly.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at dmurphy@utk.edu. Have a wonderful holiday season.
