Mission & Vision


To be regionally recognized as a premier accounting program.


The mission of the Towson University Accounting Programs is to provide our graduates with a high quality professional education that develops their knowledge and skills to prepare them for professional licensure and for success as contributors and leaders within the accounting profession or business.

The Means to Accomplish our Mission

Our undergraduate Accounting program provides a professional specialization built on a foundation of general education, a broad business core, and Accounting-specific content areas specified by the Maryland Board of Public Accountancy. Completion of the B.S. in Accounting or the M.S. in Accounting and Business Advisory Services will qualify graduates to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination in Maryland.

Like the College of Business and Economics, the Accounting Department, promotes a high code of ethics, special concern for student learning, and the effective use of technology.

To foster student learning, which is the highest priority of the department, college and university, we emphasize intellectual contributions of applied and basic scholarship; support faculty development, community engagement, and involvement in professional organizations; and are guided by input from our stakeholders and advisory boards.


Our values include an uncompromising belief in a culture where faculty excellence is fostered and rewarded; ethical behavior is a norm; professionalism, including civility and respect is a way of life; and diversity and inclusion are highly valued.
