Department Chair: John Leavins - email@example.com
The Accounting Department seeks to provide a broad-based education and promising employment prospects for future business leaders by achieving three objectives:
- To provide students with the necessary business and accounting knowledge in order for them to attain initial professional positions after graduation;
- To provide a sound base for their continuing progress in the profession;
- To create an environment within which students and faculty may exchange ideas and critically evaluate the profession and its role in society.
Although attainment of a professional designation (CPA, CMA, CIA) for the graduate is a desirable goal of the program, it is designed primarily to provide lifelong learning and decision-making skills invaluable in the graduate’s career. Education in accounting theory and practices and business analysis is a primary focus of the curriculum.
