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. Martin believes that augmenting this experience in class when teaching, answering students’ questions and leading class discussions makes for a richer learning experience for students in his class.
Similar to Martin’s research interests, some faculty in the Accountancy Department conduct research at the intersection of accounting and technology. This alignment of research interests and passion for teaching were major factors in his decision to join NIU.
Before coming to NIU, Martin taught Introduction to Management Information Systems, Information Systems Senior Seminar and tutored numerous accounting courses. Starting Fall 2017, he will be teaching Accounting Information Systems (ACCY 310).
His spare time is spent mostly with his family; wife Lilian and their three children, church and outdoors biking or golfing.
