Janet Mosebach, Associate Professor of Accountancy, Retires

Janet Mosebach

Janet Mosebach joined Boise State University in 2016 as an associate professor in the Department of Accountancy. She taught taxation at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Although Mosebach was at Boise State for only four years, she accomplished some very important work. Three years ago, she developed both of her graduate courses for online delivery, which was critical to launching our Online Master of Science in Accountancy program in 2017. Mosebach also served in the important and time-consuming role as the Scholarship Committee representative for the Department of Accountancy, and she helped develop a new scholarship program for graduate accounting students.

“Janet is one of those people that you know you can count on to successfully complete any assignment she is given,” said Troy Hyatt, chair of the Department of Accountancy. “She is a great friend and a wonderful colleague. We are going to miss her very much and wish her all the best!”

Prior to joining the Boise State faculty, she taught at the University of Toledo, University of Akron, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Arkansas. Mosebach has received multiple teaching awards, including the DeJute Memorial Undergraduate Teaching Award while at the University of Toledo, and both the Beta Gamma Sigma Outstanding Teacher of the Year and Beta Alpha Psi Outstanding Faculty Member at the University of Arkansas. She was also consistently on the list of teachers ranked as excellent by their students while at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Mosebach’s research interests are in the areas of taxation, specifically tax policy, and financial accounting. She has published articles in The ATA Journal of Legal Tax Research, Public and Municipal Finance, International Research Journal of Applied Finance, Tax Notes, and State Tax Notes. Her research has also been cited by the Congressional Research Service in its reports to the U.S. Congress.

Mosebach is a certified public accountant (currently inactive) with 10 years of experience in public accounting, working for Plante & Moran (Ann Arbor, Michigan) and KPMG (Norfolk, Virginia). She is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the American Accounting Association (AAA), the American Taxation Association (ATA), Golden Key International Honour Society, and Beta Gamma Sigma.
