After 8 years on a strong career path in accounting and finance, I've finally decided that being a finance guy for the rest of my life just doesn't float my boat. I'd really like to get into teaching business/accounting at the college level. I know I'll have to take a major pay cut, but I know it's what I want to do. Short of going back for my doctorate, can anybody give any input as to the best course of action to make this happen for me? I have a BS in accounting, am a certified public accountant, and plan on getting my MBA from a top ten school in the next couple of years. For the past couple of years, I've been trying to get as much industry experience and practical information about the business environment as possible. I realize that I'm a little green right now, but hope that I'll be in a position to be a "practicing" professor in the next 5 years or so. Does anybody have any thoughts about things I can do to help me get where I want to go? Thanks in advance.
