Professor Honored by National Association of Black Accountants

Associate Professor of Accounting Gail Sergenian received the Educational Institution Partner Award from the Boston Metropolitan Professional Chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) in recognition of her work as faculty adviser for the Boston Metropolitan Student Chapter.

Presenting the award is Francois J. Assad, NABA professional member and awards reception committee member. “I consider NABA to be the premier mentoring organization for people of color, from school throughout one’s career. It is open to all business majors, whatever one’s cultural background,” said Sergenian.

“Suffolk has had a huge presence in NABA for many years. We were the first University in the greater metropolitan Boston area to become an Educational Institution Partner by initiating a renewable NABA scholarship for an incoming student of color. In addition, we hosted the Annual Business Minority Conference and Case Competition for the last two years. Our students become very active members of the professional chapter upon graduation. Every year they have divided Case Competition teams by school, Suffolk student teams have come in first, this last year being no exception,” she added.
