About This Department
The way that organizations conduct business and the role of accountants as well as accounting and finance professionals in organizations has changed dramatically. To be an effective leader in the current business environment, they must be knowledgeable in a wide range of disciplines. They must be business people first, as well as accomplished communicators.
Our program, ranked No. 4 in the country by College Factual, is designed to meet the challenges posed by such changes. Through a flexible, relevant program of study, our students are prepared to be leaders and decision makers in an increasingly complex yet interconnected world.
Our program provides the basic background for the major professional examinations. In addition, qualified undergraduate students are eligible to take up to two graduate courses during their senior year to get a head start on completing the Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAc) program.
