Paladino named clinical assistant professor


By Alexandra Richter

This fall, School of Management alumna Katherine Paladino joined the faculty as clinical assistant professor of accounting and law after serving as an adjunct instructor since 2020.

Paladino, a CPA, brings the perspective of her industry experience in corporate taxation and tax accounting to the classroom to prepare students for success in the workplace, teaching courses including Taxation of Business Entities; Advanced Topics in ASC 740 and IRC Subchapter K; Introduction to Federal Income Taxes; and Business and Society.

With ten years of industry experience at EY and Deloitte, Paladino previously managed tax compliance and advisory engagements for multistate and multinational clients in a variety of industries, and she assisted with the audit of income tax provisions for many public and private clients. While at EY, she collaborated with the firm’s tax accounting group to redevelop several national training courses. She also served as an instructor at the Americas Tax learning weeks and as the Upstate New York representative to the Northeast People Advisory Board.

Paladino earned her MBA from the School of Management and her BS from the University at Albany.

“I decided to go back to school for my MBA so that I could pursue my long-time dream of teaching accounting. Although it was challenging to balance school, work, and being a mom, all while going through the pandemic, I’m thrilled to have been hired for this role,” says Paladino. “It’s an honor to be able to share my real-world experience with the students and to have an impact on their professional journeys.”
