The Department of Accounting is committed to preparing students for career development, life-long learning, and a global work environment. Our graduates are technically competent, think independently, critically appraise situations, act in a responsible and ethical manner, and seek challenges that will make a difference both in their career as well as the world. They work in public accounting, industry and government agencies and serve as leaders who have become CEOs, CFOs, COOs, and owners of corporate entities.
The trademark of the Department of Accounting is its dedication in all areas of accounting: tax, audit, accounting information systems, industry, and government. The Department of Accounting is proud to be separately accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission (SACS). The department has also received separate endorsements by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).
