The Department of Accounting provides students with a high-quality graduate and undergraduate
accounting education, built on a comprehensive foundation in the liberal arts and
sciences. Students gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to assume positions
of responsibility and leadership in business and society.
The Department of Accounting offers one of the only three accounting programs among
Maryland's public universities accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate
Schools of Business (AACSB International). Dual accreditation in both business and
accounting is held by only one in every four universities with AACSB accreditation.
We provide students with learning experiences through a combination of scholarly activities
and partnerships with the accounting profession and business community. Undergraduates
in our department are prepared for entry-level jobs and graduate programs in accounting.
The program also prepares them for the CPA exam. Students meet with their adviser each term to discuss their progress and to get
assistance in making any necessary changes to their course of study.
Career Services and Resources
Career and internship support services and events including the annual Accounting Open House help you find opportunities to launch your career. Students also can apply for a
variety of scholarships offered by the university, department and regional and national organizations.
We reward excellence in teaching and scholarship, promote and foster professionalism
and ethical behavior among faculty and students and encourage a climate that is conducive to collegiality, civility
and openness to diverse ideas and views.
