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. 

Our Accounting Honors program and our MAcc programs have gained worldwide recognition for excellence. According to the 2013 Public Accounting Report's Annual Professors' Survey, our undergraduate and graduate programs rank 10th and 12th, respectively, and our Ph.D. program ranks 17th overall and 13th among public universities. We also 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 2010-2013 period, as measured by 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.  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 are proud to be a part of the Max M. Fisher College of Business family. Our faculty, students, alumni and business partners share a vision of educational leadership for the 21st century.
