Changes in higher education and valuing the job : the views of accounting academics in Australia
Watty, Kim, Bellamy, Sheila and Morley, Clive 2008, Changes in higher education and valuing the job : the views of accounting academics in Australia, Journal of higher education policy and management, vol. 30, no. 2, pp. 139-151, doi: 10.1080/13600800801938747.
In a previous article (Bellamy et al., 2003), the authors reported on survey research that investigated reasons why academics from business disciplines enter and remain in academia, and the conditions they deem necessary to creating ideal work satisfaction. For both entering and remaining, as well as in achieving ideal work satisfaction, the most important factors were found to be autonomy and flexibility, with teaching and research the next most important factors. In a subsequent analysis of the data, reported in this article, the authors identify and explore significant differences between accounting academics and other business academics in the relative importance placed on these key factors. The findings may be used to inform policy makers and university administrators of the importance of discipline differences when identifying key factors for recruitment and retention of accounting academics specifically, and business academics generally.
