Our vision is to continue to be recognized as a center of outstanding accounting education.
Our mission is excellence in accounting education through teaching, enhanced by research and service.

Accounting Education Program
The Accounting Department provides an education for students who wish to be management professionals with a thorough knowledge of the essential concepts of accounting and a strong background for students desiring professional careers in public, private, government, and not-for-profit accounting. The students specializing in accounting may select courses which will prepare them specifically for one or more of these career fields.
The accounting courses are taught in the framework of modern business complexity so that the students develop their decision-making skills in realistic environments and learn the wide range of ways in which the accountant's skills are used to effectively manage an enterprise.
