HOMETOWN RELEASE: Mineola Resident to Present UT Tyler Papers at Research Conferences
Matt Lusty of Mineola, a senior accounting major at The University of Texas at Tyler, will present research papers at two research conferences this month. Dr. Harold Doty, College of Business and Technology dean, announced.
As a member of a student group, he will present “A Teaching Case Illustrating Cost-Volume-Profit Relationships in an International Setting” at the 2010 Meeting of the American Accounting Association – the Southwest Region.
They also will present “Analyzing the Risks and Benefits of Moving Production Overseas” at the 2010 Meeting of the Southwest Decision Sciences Institute.
“Both papers are teaching cases using a real company as the basis,” said Dr. Gus Gordon, UT Tyler associate professor of accounting. “The AAA paper is focused on calculating the breakeven point in an unusual situation, as well as some performance evaluation issues. The DSI paper looks at the factors to consider when locating a manufacturing plant overseas.”
Lusty will graduate in 2011 with a bachelor of business administration degree in accounting. He hopes to attend graduate school and later become a certified public accountant specializing in valuation/litigations support and business consulting.
He is president of Beta Alpha Psi and supervisor for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program with People Attempting to Help. His hobbies include fishing and golfing.
