  • Abstract

    This study examines the reasons that accounting faculty decide to stay at their universities. Our questionnaire contained 30 potential issues relating to personal characteristics, work-related characteristics, and other characteristics. We surveyed 1,393 accounting faculty members who had been faculty members for at least 10 years and who had moved to a different university at most once during the past 25 years. Personal issues relating to general happiness of the family and satisfaction with quality of life in general dominated the rankings of importance for our sample as a whole as well as across all groups partitioned by number of moves, gender, age, tenure status, length of time since last publication, and country.

    Keywords
