Marcia Weidenmier Watson, Ph.D.
- Jesse H. Jones Professor of Business , Accounting
My professional career began with summer internships at a local accounting firm while I was in college. During my M.B.A. program at the University of Texas at Austin, I interned at a large public accounting firm in their Information Systems Risk Management group. After graduation, I worked for another large public accounting firm in their Financial Systems consulting group. Four years later, I went back for my Ph.D. in accounting at the University of Texas at Austin to realize my true calling as a university professor. I enjoy teaching cutting-edge Accounting Data Analytics and Accounting Information Systems courses in new and exciting ways to prepare students for the future of accounting.
