The mission of the accounting major is to prepare bright men and women for successful careers in the accounting profession. We provide a superior education with competent professors who challenge their students to excel and who support their students’ professional aspirations. The School of Accountancy received separate AACSB (the highest accounting accrediting body) accounting accreditation in 1995.
We are committed to preparing students to take the certified public accountant examination (generally referred to as being CPA ready) in four years.
The School of Accountancy offers many opportunities for students in addition to those at the College of Business level. Some of these opportunities include membership in the nationally superior Beta Alpha Psi chapter, internships with public accounting firms and corporations, interaction with the School’s Advisory Council, Foundation SOX 404 fellows program, and tutoring students in Accounting 101.
