Senior Lecturer, Accounting
Scott Keating teaches in the accounting group. Prior to joining MIT Sloan, Keating taught at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business for eight years. As a clinical professor of accounting, he taught case-based managerial accounting in the full-time MBA program, the evening and weekend MBA programs, and the Executive MBA programs in Chicago, London, and Singapore. He also worked closely with the Office of Executive Education to develop and deliver a number of open-enrollment and custom executive education programs in accounting and finance. Previously, Keating spent five years as an assistant professor of accounting at the University of Rochester's Simon School of Business.
Keating's expertise in managerial accounting includes how business decisions are optimally based on opportunity costs, how accounting numbers can reflect these opportunity costs, and how cost allocations and transfer prices can affect the apparent costs and benefits of decision making. While focusing on helping managers to make the transition from functional to general management, he explores the areas of decision making, finance and accounting, leadership, strategy, and marketing.
He holds a DBA from Harvard Business School, an MBA from Dartmouth College, and a BSc and LLB from McGill University.
