    Accounting Faculty

    Accounting is its fundamental form involves the generation and use of financial and operational information business decision making. It has been referred to as, "The language of business." Accounting seeks to measure the results of an organization's business activities and provide this information to management, investors, creditors, consumers, and employees.

    Accounting courses are divided into two primary areas: Financial accounting pertains to information provided to external users of corporate financial statements. It is important in investment banking, investor relations, mergers and acquisitions, and other finance-related careers. Management accounting emphasizes information used within a firm for budgeting, performance evaluation, product pricing and cost control. It is useful for those pursuing careers in marketing, operations management and consulting.

    The faculty members are dedicated to providing a high quality teaching environment that enables our students to achieve their personal and professional potential. This is achieved through the close cooperation of the faculty with industry and the accounting profession.
