The mission of the Department of Accounting of the Joseph M. Bryan School of Business and Economics is (1) to provide high quality programs of education for accounting majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels, (2) to provide high quality courses to support the undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Bryan School and the University at large, (3) to simulate and support productive, high quality research, scholarship, and publication, (4) to provide service, largely through committee representation to the University, the Bryan School, the Department, the Academic Accounting Community and the Accounting profession, and (5) to foster faculty interaction with the external community that serves the needs of the external community.
The primary goal of the department is to provide programs of quality education in accounting at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate program provides an excellent foundation for accounting careers in industry, government and other not-for-profit organizations; is sufficiently broad to qualify graduates for a wide range of entry-level, business-related positions; and prepares students for further graduate-level studies in areas such as accounting, law and business administration.
