Department of Accounting and Finance

The Department of Accounting and Finance strives to be recognized nationally for providing a high-quality accounting and finance education that integrates technical skills with the development of personal attributes necessary for the continuing growth and success of our graduates.  To this end, we work to build competence in technical accounting knowledge and important skills such as communication, critical thinking, analytical, interpersonal, and technological skills. We offer competitive academic scholarships to assist students desiring to enter the program.

The Department of Accounting and Finance has a rich legacy of educating business professionals with a strong comprehension of accounting. We were the first accounting program at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to receive the prestigious accreditation of AACSB International. This recognition provides evidence of the Department’s focus on maintaining highly-qualified faculty and high standards in student learning. Graduates of the Accounting Department regularly complete requirements for professional certifications such as the CPA and the CMA.  In fact, the Accounting program is one of the largest producers of African-American Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in the nation.

Each year, Big Four accounting firms recruit our accounting majors in addition to national  and regional accounting firms, Fortune 500 service and industrial firms and large governmental agencies. These companies also offer an abundance of opportunities for summer internships. Thank you for taking time to explore how our department can contribute to your future success.
