Tony Bucaro, CPA, PhD, joined the Weatherhead faculty in the fall of 2015, after receiving his PhD in Accountancy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to joining the academic community, Bucaro worked for 15 years in public accounting. He joined the international audit and accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche, in 1995, where his professional focus was financial statements and processes of large public and private companies. More specifically, he focused on the audit of business processes, risks and internal controls over financial reporting, and consulted with clients to improve their risk-related processes. Deloitte & Touche made Bucaro a Partner in 2007. He left public practice in 2010 to pursue his PhD in Accountancy and now uses his professional experience to guide practical, academic research related to effective audit processes, audit regulation, and other accounting topics, and to teach financial accounting, audit, and accounting information systems.
