David Johnson, Ph.D., is a retired full-time faculty member at Northcentral University.
He has over 30 years teaching experience at the college level, with 25 years teaching accounting.
Over the years he has grown frustrated with the way accounting is taught, which inspired him to obtain his Ph.D. in education from the University of Minnesota. He also has a masters degree in marketing/finance from the J. L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University and a bachelors degree in accounting from the University of Illinois. He began his career in public accounting after passing the CPA exam.
His passion is instruction and how people learn. He has designed his UPLYRN course with principles learned from his Ph.D. studies, recognizing that most people want to be able to determine how a company is doing by reading financial statements. They don't want to become accountants first.
