Today’s technological revolution — an era of big data and artificial intelligence — is causing massive disruption to traditional approaches in organizational planning, business operations and advancement in the market. This includes disruption to the accounting profession. Integral to our success is the evolution and elevation of our accounting program into the status and structure of a school of accountancy within the the College of Business and Economics. With a robust curriculum and expert faculty, the College of Business and Economics is ranked among the region’s leading business schools and programs. The college’s department of accounting, one of the largest in the country, is part of a select group accredited separately by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) — a distinction achieved by exceptional educators who consistently lead in innovation and research, and who publish and are cited extensively.
Powered by an endowment, the new school will herald sweeping innovation that best prepares our students for the future, helps raise the profile of the the College of Business and Economics on the national stage, strengthens service to the business community and attracts the highest quality faculty.
