Leopoldo Doadrio has taught financial accounting at IE Business School for some twenty years. Up to 2002, he combined his teaching with his position as senior account manager in Fortis Bank. This double facet, which he looks back on as a particularly positive experience, provided the ideal combination of an opportunity to apply accounting language to the world of business and vice versa. He had already had plenty of practice as an independent auditor from his beginnings when as manager of an SME in the food sector. He is currently immersed in the analysis of regulator process of the accounting reform in 2007 in Spain and of the New Accounting Plan in Spain, a subject that, with the International Accounting standards or Financial Information has been teaching seminars in open programs and other forums
As director of the control and information department, he is responsible for allocating professors to the different programmes of the Instituto de Empresa and coordinating the updating and homogenisation of the contents, especially the financial accounting programme content, ensuring that it is perfectly adapted to new norms of the recent accounting reforms of 2007 .
In his own words: “The vast majority of Spanish enterprises are still not aware of the true scope of the accounting changes that we have nowadays”, states Professor Doadrio, who combines this speciality with the preparation of his PhD in Senior Management at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid), where he is tackling particularities of the mentioned regulator process carried on in the past years in Spain
Professor Doadrio holds a Degree in Economic and Business Sciences from Universidad Complutense de Madrid and an MBA from IE Business School. His current objective is “to make financial accounting an attractive subject”, which he is trying to achieve through his classes.
