Welcome to the
Department of Accounting and Finance

Accounting is the only discipline within business for which separate accreditation is given, and we are one of only 178 programs worldwide to have separate accounting accreditation from the AACSB.  Our finance programs, like all other business programs, are not separately accredited, but are accredited under the umbrella of AACSB business accreditation, the premier accrediting agency for business programs worldwide. We work very hard to maintain the quality and continuous improvement expected from programs which have achieved AACSB business and accounting accreditation.

The mission of the Department of Accounting and Finance of the Joseph M. Bryan School of Business and Economics is to:

  1. Provide high quality programs of education for accounting and finance majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels
  2. Provide high quality courses to support the UNCG and Bryan School educational missions as they relate accounting and finance to global processes, sustainable enterprise, innovation and ethical awareness
  3. Stimulate and support high quality research, scholarship, and publication
  4. Provide service, largely through committee representation to the University, the Bryan School, the Department, the academic accounting and finance communities, and the accounting profession
  5. Foster faculty interaction with the public in ways which enhance the common good.

Our graduates have meaningful and productive careers in business and industry, government, education, and in nonprofit organizations. Most take positions in areas like auditing, business advisory services, financial planning and analysis, banking, tax, and management. A few of the many employers of our students are Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP; Bank of America; Bank of Oak Ridge; BBT; Bernard Robinson & Co.; Breslow Starling; Davenport, Marvin Joyce & Co.,LLP; Ernst & Young, LLP; Grant Thornton; Hanesbrands Inc; Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina; KPMG; Leeper, Kean & Rumley; McGladrey & Pullen, LLP; PwC; Robert Half & Associates; RSM McGladrey; Sharrard, McGee & Co.; Smith Leonard; SPX Corporation; Wachovia; VF Jeanswear and VF Corporation; Volvo; Lincoln Financial.
