Nancy Mangold Recognized as Outstanding Professor by CSUEB Colleagues, CSU System
For more than 30 years, Nancy Mangold has been known as a “go-to” expert on accounting and finance, not only by her Cal State East Bay colleagues but by national and international organizations as well.
Mangold, selected as the George and Miriam Phillips “Outstanding Professor” recipient for 2012-13, has taught 16 different undergraduate, postgraduate and executive-level accounting courses since first stepping on the Hayward campus in 1984. Named earlier this year as one of its “Outstanding Faculty” among all 23 campuses of the California State University system, Mangold has been sought for her accounting acumen by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the World Bank.
As chair of Accounting and Finance, Mangold was one of two professors in the U.S. selected in 2009–10 by the SEC for a fellowship in that agency’s Office of the Chief Accountant.
“That was a very exciting opportunity for me, especially at the time of financial crisis,” says Mangold, “because I had the opportunity to make contributions to important national and international accounting and auditing issues facing our country.”
The World Bank, a United Nations international financial institution that provides loans to developing countries, appointed her special consultant to the People’s Bank of China (PBC, China’s Central Bank) in 2001 to conduct research for establishing a deposit insurance system in that country.
Despite her successes in teaching accounting nationally and internationally, and winning best paper awards in accounting research, Mangold’s main interest is her Cal State East Bay accounting students.
“I have chosen the right profession — being an educator,” Mangold says. “There is nothing that gives me more pride and satisfaction than to see my students succeed. I am humbled how my teaching can have such an impact on students, and how they have valued my teaching.”
