Tippie Accounting Professor Dain Donelson, along with three co-authors, has been awarded the 2023 Deloitte Foundation Wildman Medal Award by the American Accounting Association (AAA) for the paper “The Revival of Large Consulting Practices at the Big 4 and Audit Quality," published in the November 2020 issue of Accounting, Organizations and Society.

Professor Donelson is the Henry B. Tippie Excellence Chair in Accounting and the Director of Graduate Studies in Accounting at the University of Iowa.

Donelson’s collaborators were Matthew Ege of Texas A&M, Andrew Imdieke of Notre Dame, and Eldar Maksymov of Arizona State University. As recipients of “the AAA award,” they will be presented with a medal and monetary prize at the August 2023 AAA Annual Meeting to be held in Denver, Colo.

The Deloitte Foundation Wildman Medal Award was founded in 1978 to commemorate John Wildman and to encourage research relevant to the professional practice of accounting to which much of Mr. Wildman's life was devoted.
