Faculty Excellence Award



Dr. Salem Lofti Boumediene is recognized for his strong commitment to continuous improvement in teaching, high degree of integrity, and as a University and industry leader. For this, he has been named one of this year’s Faculty Excellence Award winners.


Salem has been teaching at MSUB’s College of Business for four years and is an associate professor of Accounting and Business.


A colleague said Salem’s methods stand out in the classroom.


“Among his positive attributes as a teacher, Dr. Boumediene is a faculty leader in utilizing the TEIL (Technology Enhanced Interactive Learning) classroom to improve the learning outcomes of students in his Accounting courses,” the colleague said.


Further, Salem receives high accolades from students and via peer review.


“These reviews are extremely favorable in his use of the technology and group work, resulting in students coming early and leaving late because they are so highly engaged in learning.”


Salem has over 24 years of experience as a college professor and an independent accounting and information systems consultant.


He is an industry leader as well. Currently Salem is committee chair of a section of the American Accounting Association and the Director of Information Systems for the Western Decision Sciences Institute.


He has published articles in several research journals and a book on the statistical properties of accounting information and the fraud in financial statements and received several awards for his research.


It’s exciting to experiment with different teaching methods, Salem said, and he enjoys watching students in the TEIL room.

“Teaching active learning and group learning is important because as engagement increases, so does student success,” he said.


Salem is dedicated to student success and is an inspiration to all at MSU Billings.
