The Freeman College of Management professor is one of 26 professors cited by the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news.
LEWISBURG, Pa. — Amber Lawson, assistant professor of practice in accounting in Bucknell University’s Freeman College of Management, is one of 26 professors cited among “The Favorite Business Professors Of The Class Of 2023” by Poets&Quants for Undergrads, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news.
Poets&Quants staff posed the question about favorite business professors last spring to the outlet’s “Best & Brightest Business Majors” — the top graduating seniors at the top undergraduate business programs. The online publication published its list last month.
“Professor Amber Lawson taught two of my favorite classes at Bucknell: Foundations of Accounting II and Auditing & Assurance. She has a naturally-engaging personality and brings real-world experience as an auditor to the classroom,” said Danny Cecere ’23, a business administration graduate, in the Poets&Quants story announcing the honor. “She regularly relates concepts to her background experiences to make difficult ideas more understandable and concrete. Her enthusiasm for accounting, along with her willingness to share her experiences with her students, influenced my interest in an accounting career. I also had the privilege of serving as one of her teaching assistants and developed a valued friendship through this experience. She is always generous with her time and advice and continues to serve as a mentor to me as I prepare for the CPA exam and workplace.”
Lawson joined the Freeman College faculty in Aug. 2020. She teaches such courses as Foundations of Accounting II, Intermediate Financial Accounting I, and Auditing & Assurance, among others. She is also the faculty advisor of the Bucknell Petitioning Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, an international honor society for accounting, finance and information systems students attending universities accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business or the European Quality Improvement System.
