Adjunct Professor of Accounting
Accepting an offer to teach as a means of earning some additional income may have been one of Eric Sussman's more auspicious decisions. Currently an Adjunct Professor in accounting and real estate at UCLA Anderson, Sussman first taught a certified public accountant exam review course after graduating from Stanford's Graduate School of Business and accepting a position with a small real estate investment firm. It was a role he thoroughly enjoyed. So, when he was first offered a lecturer's position at Anderson by his mentor and former teacher, David Ravetch, he jumped at the opportunity.
Since 1995, he has been teaching courses in the areas of cost/managerial accounting, financial accounting, financial statement analysis, equity valuation, corporate financial reporting and real estate investment and finance to undergraduate, graduate and Executive Education students. In addition, he has advised numerous MBA and Fully Employed MBA field study teams and led student travel groups to Brazil, China, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi. He has also served as a guest lecturer at UC Berkeley, George Washington University and the Helsinki School of Economics, and created a series on accounting and finance for the Great Courses (the Teaching Company).
