Accounting Professor Susan C. Borkowski has done extensive research on transfer pricing, an international tax issue from both the tax authority and corporate perspectives. Her research focus has helped her sustain a publication record in leading accounting and international business journals, give presentations at national and international conferences, and consult at the United Nations. She has also explored the connections between accounting, ethics, and sustainability measures as well as the role of women in accounting.
During her career at La Salle, Dr. Borkowski has become an internationally-recognized scholar in her field while still maintaining her commitment to her school, department, and students. She reaches out to students beyond the classroom by serving as faculty advisor for several undergraduate and graduate case-study competitions.
