Department of Accounting

The accounting department is committed to quality in educational programming, research pursuits and community service.

Education is a vital objective of the department. We deliver quality accounting education through a coordinated program of faculty advising and staff counseling. Internships are used as an additional vehicle to prepare students for the professional expectations of the workplace.

The department provides advanced study and synergistic programs through its graduate offerings, including the Master of Science in Accounting, joint Master of Science in Accounting/Master of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration accounting specialization. We ensure that graduates demonstrate proficiency in contemporary management skills such as information technology, communication techniques and teamwork. The program promotes a perspective of the global economy and cultural diversification necessary for the knowledge worker of the 21st century.

Commitment to research is an integral component of the department. We feature an academically respected and professionally qualified faculty who actively produce and support basic and applied research. Faculty research and teaching expectations emphasize individual strengths, interests and career development through a coordinated program of peer review, support and counsel. Our faculty pursue external service activities that enhance departmental visibility, reputation and presence at the local, national and international levels. We are dedicated to service to the students, college and university that enhances the university's urban mission.
