lecturer - accounting department
Edward Taylor has taught a variety of accounting and taxation courses at Boston College since 1986 at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He is a Certified Public Accountant and spent five years with the international accounting firm of KPMG. In 2004, Taylor was the ninth recipient of the Mary Kaye Waldron award. The Mary Kaye Waldron Award, established in 1996 by the UGBC, seeks to honor a member of the faculty or staff who has demonstrated a continuing commitment to the values and Jesuit ideals of Boston College. It is the only award of its kind that is nominated and selected entirely by students. A committee made up entirely of students selected Taylor out of 130 nominated professors because of his dedication to students inside and outside of the classroom. In addition, in 2005, Taylor won the Carroll School of Management Honors Program Outstanding Teaching Award.
Ed has taught over 100 courses in topics such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, cost accounting, federal taxation, advanced accounting and assurance and consulting services. During this time, Ed has been involved in extensive faculty service with the student body. Taylor is the faculty advisor to the Accounting Academy, and is the coordinator for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. The VITA program sends students out into the community to assist the needy and elderly in preparing their annual tax returns.
In addition, under the leadership of Taylor, Boston College has served as the Northeast Regional host site for the Deloitte Tax Case Study Competition since 1997. The competition includes over sixty universities nationally and gives students an opportunity to play the role of a tax consultant and deal with some complex tax issues in a challenging team environment. It is a valuable, real-world experience for the student competitors. The BC undergraduate team has received national honors in the competition six different times.
