Welcome to the Department of Accounting

Our Mission

is to offer quality, student-centered accounting programs for undergraduate and graduate students. Our primary goal is to prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry, government, nonprofit, and other organizations.

We strive to:

  • Provide quality instruction and curricula that offer strong conceptual foundations and technical skills in accounting. Our programs emphasize critical thinking, ethical decision-making, technology usage, and communication skills. Our graduate programs augment the undergraduate degree and prepare graduates for professional careers in accounting including eligibility for licensure by State Boards of Public Accountancy.
  • Engage in intellectual contributions in the areas of discipline-based scholarship, contributions to practice and learning and pedagogical research.
  • Provide service to our department, college, university, and other academic organizations. This includes support of the accounting profession and accounting student organizations. We also strive to build and maintain professional relationships among students, alumni, the accounting profession, and other stakeholders.
