Department head's message

Small class sizes ensure that individual attention is given to our students and that strong mentoring relationships between faculty and students are formed.

Welcome to the website of the Department of Accounting at the School of Business Administration.

The Department of Accounting develops exceptional undergraduate and graduate students with the potential to advance the regional and global accounting community. Knowledge of accounting is an important skill that enables students to excel in a wide range of business fields.

Our highly qualified and experienced faculty members have devised undergraduate and graduate curricula that prepare students well for obtaining professional accounting certifications such as Certified Public Accountant (CPA), the Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) to further enhance their career options. The high passing rate of our graduates in the CPA exam is an indication of the high quality accounting education we provide.

Our faculty is actively engaged in conducting research and advancing knowledge in a variety of accounting areas. Their insights are passed on to our students in interactive sessions. Small class sizes ensure that individual attention is given to our students and that strong mentoring relationships between faculty and students are formed.

Selecting a college and an area of specialization are critical decisions in your academic life. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our undergraduate (BSBA) and graduate (MSA) programs in accounting and help you determine if this exciting field of business is right for you.

“AUS has always been and will always be my second home! It goes without saying that I still miss the campus and faculty (my other family) who were, and still are, always there for me whenever I need advice. The moral lessons taught are still helping me manage my work and social life and I can’t thank AUS enough for molding us that way." – Mahnoor Mehmood, accounting major, class of 2016, Associate Financial Analyst at Abbott.

“Being a student at the School of Business Administration at AUS is a great opportunity. The learning experience I receive at AUS is unique and interesting through the different business and other major courses that are offered. The professors at SBA make classes really interesting by bringing real life examples into class. AUS does not only offer textbook knowledge but also integrates this knowledge with activities done on campus like different workshops, lectures, and gatherings. I am really pleased with my choice of joining SBA and am very excited to see what experience and knowledge I will receive in the next 2 years.” – Mariam Mohsen, a sophomore majoring in accounting.
