Dr. Lawson earned M.B.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the Stern School of Business, New York University.
In 2006, with the cooperation of China’s Ministry of Commerce, arrangements were made for Dr. Lawson to visit a dozen state and privately-owned business corporations in China to obtain information about their costing practices and performance management systems. These companies represented a diverse range of industries in China. These field studies were then followed up with a larger, related survey of Chinese companies. Based on these field studies and survey, IMA published a research study on Costing Methodologies and Cost Management Practices in the Peoples’ Republic of China. For the workshop, Dr. Lawson will share with you the development of the Cost Management Practices in China as well as his insights. Besides, attending the workshop will help IMA members earn 2.5 CPE credits.
