Message from the Chairperson
Welcome to the Department of Accounting and Finance, which has a long history of educating business professionals who are prepared to launch successful careers in accounting and related fields. Graduates of the Department have access to a broad range of employment opportunities in domestic and multinational businesses, government and not-for-profit organizations. Each year, the Department places students in internships and permanent employment with Big Four and large regional accounting firms as well as Fortune 500 companies and government entities. Graduates of our program have become CEOs, business owners and accounting firm partners. More than 100 firms and agencies recruit accounting and other business students from North Carolina A&T State University, which creates a wide array of employer contact opportunities for our students.
The Accounting and Finance Department holds one of only 177 programs internationally that have earned specialized accounting accreditation. The accounting program was accredited in 1986 by AACSB International, and was the first accounting program at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to receive this prestigious accreditation. This accreditation evidences highly-qualified faculty who is active in research, high-quality facilities, a strong curriculum and a history of highly-successful graduates.
Thank you for taking time to explore our program. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss how our Department can help you launch a successful career in business.
