Beta Alpha Psi has selected Professor Susan Anderson as the 2018 Business Professional of the Year in the category of Education.
Professor of Accounting Susan Anderson was named the 2018 Business Professional of the Year award in the category of Education by Beta Alpha Psi, the international honor organization for financial information students and professionals.
The Lambda Xi chapter of Beta Alpha Psi at Elon University nominated Anderson for the national award, emphasizing her commitment to providing professional guidance to students, to Elon’s VITA program and to community service.
“Beta Alpha Psi nominated Dr. Anderson due to her commitment to the community through service learning as well as her passion for inspiring curiosity in her classroom,” said Kristen Bellini ’18, president of Elon’s chapter. “She serves not only as the site coordinator for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, dedicating every Saturday to prepping tax returns for the Burlington area, but is also the faculty coordinator for the newly implemented M.S. in Accounting program.”
Anderson will receive the award, sponsored by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), at the Beta Alpha Psi annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on August 10.
In addition to this honor, the Lambda Xi chapter will be awarded $2,000.
