Aghimien Receives Award

October 27, 2003

The Indiana CPA Society has chosen Indiana University South Bend Professor Peter. A. Aghimien as the recipient of this year’s Outstanding Accounting Educator Award.
Aghimien, a professor of accounting, has over 21 years of teaching experience in managerial, international, and financial accounting. Previously he has taught at Grambling State University, Tennessee State University, and recently has taught and conducted research as a Fulbright Scholar at Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria. He also performs services as a licensed certified public accountant.

Students have said they appreciate professor Aghimien’s organized and disciplined approach to teaching, which is tempered by an abundant sense of humor and easy rapport with the class. As both a perfectionist (when it comes to planning a course) and a devoted, caring educator, he is an inspiration and a great motivator.

The Indiana CPA Society, established in 1915, currently has 7,500 CPA’s statewide. Aghimien accepted the award at the CPA Celebration ’03, held on Oct. 10 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, Indianapolis.

This annual banquet recognizes society award winners, 40- and 50-year members, and those who have recently passed the CPA exam.
