Associate Professor of Accounting
Meet Dr. Theresa Henry
For Theresa Henry, associate professor of accounting, teaching transcends the classroom. A certified public accountant in New Jersey, Henry has experience in both public (PricewaterhouseCoopers) and private practice. Her research interests include executive compensation, internal controls and financial disclosures. She draws on her own personal experience and translates that to her teaching, mentoring and advising.
"Teaching is so incredibly rewarding to me. I really enjoy watching students discovering new concepts and finding their way as they move through the coursework," Henry says "I am always so touched on graduation day when I see our students so eager to begin the next chapter of their lives yet very grateful for all that Seton Hall has done for them. It is a great feeling to know that I was a small part of their journey."
One of the ways students build their resumes through the accounting program is via real-world work experience. "The work experience that students take on in college is truly invaluable. It really puts concepts into practice so students are able to apply their classroom learning to real work experiences," Henry notes. "The work experiences also help to open their eyes to the various career paths available to them. This gives them the opportunity to decide what truly is the best career fit for them."
Almost all students in the Stillman School of Business complete an internship with companies like Goldman Sachs, Deloitte & Touche, JP Morgan Chase, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Prudential, KPMG and many more. This hands-on experience and the Stillman School’s prestigious reputation and rigorous accreditation, which ensures we have a standard of excellence held by fewer than 10 percent of the business schools in the world, are just some of the reasons 90 percent of our business graduates find employment after graduation with starting salaries of about $52,000 a year.
