School of Accounting, Financial Services & Law
After qualifying as a chartered accountant, Andy spent seven years working for Surgikos Ltd, a subsidiary of the Johnson & Johnson Group. His interest in teaching came through the foresight of the Surgikos MD, who believed that if the shop-floor employees understood the impact that their work had on the company’s financial results, then everyone would gain from the experience. Who best to teach them? … Lets try Moffat! Andy came to Edinburgh Napier in 1991. He works particularly hard to create a bond with his students, believing that the student’s enthusiasm for learning can come from the lecturer’s enthusiasm for teaching … plus a bit of system. Andy has experience of teaching abroad (Mauritius, Prague, Warsaw and South Africa) and currently teaches on a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses. He is the module leader for Accounting for Business 1, which is taught to all the non-accounting Business School students in the first year of their programme. With his strong student focus, Andy is also a guidance tutor for years 1 and 2 of the BA Accounting degrees and is responsible for admissions/recruitment to all the accounting undergraduate programmes.
