The mission of the School of Accountancy is to provide an engaging learning experience that transforms students into promising accounting professionals of integrity ready to serve the global economy. We provide a superior education with competent professors who challenge their students to excel and who support their students’ professional aspirations. The School of Accountancy has maintained separate AACSB (the highest accounting accrediting body) accounting accreditation since 1995.


The curriculum completed by School of Accountancy graduates provides all accounting and business courses required to sit for the CPA examination (generally referred to as being CPA ready). Successful students can choose to complete the 150 semester hour requirement by double majoring as an undergraduate student or by enrolling in a one-year graduate program of their choice. The School of Accountancy curriculum incorporates an active learning approach for teaching. This approach goes beyond preparing students in technical accounting content by emphasizing teamwork, professional research of accounting issues, and communication skills.

Special Opportunities

The School of Accountancy offers many opportunities for students in addition to those at the College of Business level. Some of these opportunities include membership in the nationally superior Beta Alpha Psi chapter, internships with public accounting firms and corporations, interaction with the School’s Advisory Council, and participation in the SOX 404 Fellows program, and membership in the Ohio University Student Center for the Public Trust.
