Professor Yeong C. Choi holds a Ph.D. in Accounting from Drexel University and is a licensed Certified Public Accountant in the State of New Jersey and New York. He has published numerous articles in such peer-reviewed journals as the Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance, the Journal of Teaching in International Business, the Journal of Higher Education, the Review of Business, the Commercial Lending Review, Journal of Finance and Accounting Information and Bank Accounting and Finance. He has presented many papers at such international, national and regional academic forums as the Mid-Atlantic Regional meeting of the American Accounting Association, the Annual Asian Conference, the Annual World Business Conference, the Annual Facing East/West Conference, the Annual International Conference of the Korean Accounting Information Association and Korean Academic Society of Taxation. His research productivity is presented in the following timeline. • In early years, he established a very strong quantitative research trail so that in 1994, the Peter J. Tobin College recognized his publication in such a high-tier Journal as JAAF by “Outstanding Research Contribution of the Year award”. • In the middle of his research period, active research collaboration with national and international colleagues has been successfully demonstrated by publications on the various areas of such concurrent accounting issues as FASB/SEC accounting standard issues, 150-hour accounting education change, IFRS (International Financial Accounting Standards) issues etc. • His recent research productivity is also very impressive by national and international recognitions. In 2015, he received “the Best Research Paper of the Year” by the Korean Accounting Information Association for his publication to help the Korean accounting education system develop a better education system from America’s accounting education change effort experience. Another accomplishment is the recognition by the Korean Accounting Association in June 2018 receiving the Korean Accounting Association’s “Accounting Education Innovation Award” which reads “This honorable award decision is made through a special deliberation process of the Accounting Education Competition Enforcement Committee of the Association.” This recognition not only achieved his own research objectives but also contributed to achieving St. John’s global mission. • In 2016 he also published a financial accounting textbook in Korea to clarify significant discrepancies in financial accounting concepts and theories in almost all Korean textbooks. He incorporated a standardized pedagogical framework to correct those discrepancies in the Korean textbooks. In April of 2019, Tobin College of Business of St. John’s recognized his commitment to pedagogical research awarding “the Tobin Pedagogical Research Award for 2019”. • Professor Choi was a Visiting Research Scholar by the Bank of Korea in 2000. He also was the recipient of Visiting Research Grants from the Korean National Tax Administration in 1996 Academic Year and the recipient of Visiting Research Grant from the Korean National Justice Office in 2016. To enhance, St. John’s global mission, he, as Coordinator, has been in charge of the 3+2 Joint Accounting Program with Yeungnam University in Korea. St. John’s and YU has established a sister school affiliation since 1975. To help facilitate USA’s accounting education change effort into Korean education system, the 3+2 Joint Accounting program for YU was established in 2001 under the auspice of the former Dean Tobin’s fund.
