Our Faculty

Our faculty members include a retired Big Four partner and others who have had successful careers in Big Four and regional accounting firms, major corporations, small businesses, and government. We also maintain the highest academic qualifications and regularly publish in scholarly and professional journals. 

As dedicated teachers, our faculty bring their expertise into the classroom, challenging students to learn by doing while they build credentials and integrate disciplines. They work closely with students, whether it’s through collaborative research, supervising internships, or advising them about graduate school and careers. 

The Concentration

The accounting curriculum provides a flexible program of study relevant to all areas of accounting. Electives and internships permit you to pursue areas of specific interests. The program also provides the basic background for the major professional examinations (i.e., CPA, CMA, CIA, CFM, and CISA).

The MPAc

After graduation, you may choose to pursue the Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAc). This program was developed by Bryant faculty and the region’s top accounting professionals as a fifth-year accelerated graduate degree option that allows you to finish the 150-hour prerequisite and sit earlier for the CPA exam.
