Mahmoud Nourayi Appointed to Grosch Professorship

LMU Accounting Department Chair Mahmoud Nourayi has been selected to serve as the next Grosch Professor for a three-year term beginning this fall. The Grosch Professorship is named after Paul Grosch, who was an accounting professor at LMU for 32 years. Professor Grosch’s vision for educating competitive and ethical accounting professionals is still at the core of the LMU Accounting Program. Distinguished faculty who hold the Grosch Professorship perpetuate this legacy and ensure that the Department of Accounting sustains its tradition of excellence in accounting education. Past holders of the Grosch Professorship include Ross Bengel (2011-2013) and George Dasaro (2005-2006).

“Commitment to academic excellence, individual integrity, and good professional judgment are Professor Grosch’s legacy and I am grateful to be selected as holder of the professorship in his name,” said Mahmoud.

In this role, Mahmoud will be responsible for organizing the Grosch Lecture Series, which brings prominent executives and local business leaders to campus each semester to recount their experiences and share their knowledge on some of the biggest issues in global business today.
