Martin Ndicu (pronounced “dish-oh”), earned his Ph.D. in Information Systems from Mississippi State University. He is a CPA (Kenya), holds a Master of Accounting from Bowling Green State University (OH) and an MBA (Finance and MIS) from La Salle University (PA).
Ndicu has about 10 years of international industry experience earned from positions he held in different companies – Finance Manager in a shipping company, Chief Accountant in Manufacturing and service companies as well as other staff accountant positions. He believes that augmenting this experience in class when teaching, answering students’ questions and leading class discussions provides a richer learning experience for students in his class.
He conducts behavioral research, focusing on topics at the intersection of accounting and technology such as technology adoption, change readiness, analytics and application of technology. His research has addressed different contexts such as organizations in general, and specific domains like accountancy and education; and is open to collaboration across disciplines.Before coming to NIU, Martin taught Introduction to Management Information Systems, Information Systems Senior Seminar and tutored numerous accounting courses. Here at NIU Ndicu teaches Information Systems related courses such as Accounting Information Systems and System Analysis and Design.
