Hello. Welcome to My Site

My name is Kim T. Mollberg and I am a professionally-qualified tenure-track Assistant Professor in Accounting at Minnesota State University Moorhead. I joined MSUM in the fall of 2008. My plans to maintain my professionally qualified status (required for our School of Business to keep AACSB accreditation) are threefold: 1) continue to practice on a limited basis as a CPA in Detroit Lakes, 2) obtain additional certification (completed requirements and became active Certified Management Accountant in 2011, Certified Global Management Accountant in 2012), 3) write in appropriate journals (I have several articles in progress at this time).

Accounting 230: Principles of Accounting

Accounting 441: Individual Income Tax
