Andrew J. Judd, Ph.D., CPA
Andrew J. Judd, is an Associate Professor of Accounting in the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting at the University of Central Florida. He came to the University of Central Florida in 1987 and has taught primarily in the University's Master of Science in Taxation program where he has taught four of the seven courses offered (a general survey course and seminars in Partnership Taxation, International Taxation and Estate and Gift Taxation). This program has graduated over 250 students since its inception in 1987. Students in this program have distinguished themselves by advancing to the national finals of Deloitte (formerly Andersen) Tax Challenge competition in seven of the eight years they have competed. At the national finals the UCF team has placed first and third against competition from teams representing Brigham Young and the Univeristy of Denver (two of the nation’s more prominent tax programs). Notwithstanding the rigorous nature of these courses, he has consistently received student evaluations that substantially exceed both the School and College norms and is the recipient of a UCF Teaching Incentive Program Award. He has also teaches in the College’s Executive Masters of Business Administration program and also served as Director of the Dixon School from 1994-2005. He holds a Bachelor of Arts and MBA degrees from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. from the University of Florida.

He also assumed responsibility for chairing the chapter’s Membership Committee in 2006. In his role as committee member, he has helped plan and participate in the FICPA’s Summer Minority Residency Intership Programs offered twice at UCF. He has also facilitated bringing the High School Accounting Teachers Summer Program to UCF. He has also been an active participant in the chapter’s annual Accounting Field Day and annual Industry Field Day program for college and high school students from the Central Florida Region. At the state level, he actively served on the FICPA’s 150 hour task force that drafted recommendations for consideration by the State Board of Accountancy to changes in the education requirements to become a CPA to address the changing needs of the profession and revisions to the Uniform CPA Examination.
Dr. Judd also helped establish UCF’s student chapter of the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting (ALPFA) serving as its first faculty advisor. For two years, he also coached the School’s team that competed in the KPMG/ALPFA Regional Case Competition.
He has also been active in national accounting organizations holding committee positions in both the Accounting Programs Leadership Group and the Federation of Schools of Accountancy. He served as national president for the Federation of Schools of Accountancy in 2005 – 2006.
In addition to teaching at the University of Central Florida, he has served on the faculty of Seattle University and has taught as a Visiting Professor at the University of Washington. He was employed in public accounting for three years as an audit and tax staff accountant by Arthur Andersen & Co. in Seattle. In addition to his academic employment, he served in the U.S. Army for three years with duty assignments in the United States and Germany.
On several occasions, he has been a speaker for the University of Central Florida Annual Tax Conference. Professional journals in which Professor Judd has had articles published include the Journal of Accountancy, Taxes - The Magazine, Advances in Taxation, and the Journal of Taxation of Investments.
