Department of Accounting and MIS

We have a rich heritage of educating leaders in the academic and practicing professions. Our undergraduate accounting program is highly regarded as a top school, and is a national target recruiting program by many accounting firms and other employers. Also, we founded and continue to host the Accounting Hall of Fame, which recognizes those who have made significant contributions to accounting thought and practice.

We create new knowledge to improve the collective understanding of accounting and its role in improving economic decisions for the benefit of society. Our research productivity for the 2011-2014 period, as measured by UT Dallas Research Rankings based on publications in the top 3 academic accounting journals (The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics, and Journal of Accounting Research) places us in the top 10 for research.
