Dr. Press’s Curriculum Vitae, Website
After earning his doctoral degree from the University of Oregon in 1988, Eric began his career at SUNY-Buffalo. The durability of western New York winters soon exceeded his patience (having been raised in Miami), so, after a visit at the Fuqua School of Duke University, he moved to Philadelphia (where his wife has relatives) to join the Fox School of Business at Temple University in 1992.
Dr. Press has been an active researcher, publishing in journals such as Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, Review of Accounting Studies, and the Journal of Business Finance and Accounting. He taught a variety of accounting courses at the undergraduate, MBA, and Ph.D. levels. As chairman of the Department of Accounting at Temple since 2006, Eric has crossed a number of items off his to-do list. He revised the undergraduate curriculum to make learning more effective for students; instituted an annual performance review of undergraduate accounting majors; recruited several nationally prominent Accounting scholars; signed up founding members of the Temple Accounting Circle to support faculty research, Ph.D. students, and professional development activities; initiated a Masters of Accountancy program that began in 2011; and, in 2014, oversaw fund raising and an Alumni Reunion Dinner that together raised more than $700,000 for scholarships. These accomplishments evidence Eric’s dedication to accounting education and research.
