Our Mission

As the accounting program on the flagship campus of a major land grant institution, our mission is to advance the University's goals, both as a research institution committed to higher education and as a land grant institution committed to public service. We do so by 1) providing high quality educational programs that prepare qualified students for careers in accounting, related management professions, and academe, 2) creating and sharing new knowledge through faculty and doctoral research, and 3) providing outreach services to the Commonwealth.

Our Vision

In fulfilling this mission, our aim is to be recognized on campus, within the larger University system, and throughout the state for leadership in education in the field of accounting. Further, the Department of Accounting strives to be the premier accounting program at a public university in New England and to be recognized for excellence among programs, public and private, in the northeastern United States.
