Dan Stone is the Rosenthal Endowed Chair and Director of the Minor in Business Analytics in the Gatton College of Business at the University of Kentucky.

His teaching and research interests include:

  • Data visualization
  • Text analytics
  • The effects of technology and mindfulness on attention and learning

He’s also been published in:

  • The Journal of Experimental Psychology
  • Accounting Horizons
  • The Journal of Information Systems
  • Journal of Forensic and Investigative Accounting

  • and many more

I think BEC is the cornerstone, or foundation, of the CPA exam, and much of the rest of the exam builds upon that. I am thrilled to teach the content that I teach with respect to the CPA exam because it is very relevant in many cases to your lives apart from the CPA exam.
