School of Accounting,
Economics and Finance
The School of Accounting, Economics and Finance ensures that our students receive quality education in both the skills and the conceptual understandings necessary to flourish in professional careers.
Long-term success requires the ability to think both strategically and critically, and we build these talents for our students through creative and innovative teaching practices and curricula.
Because we combine three disciplines that are closely related – accounting, economics and finance – our students enter the world of business and economics with a breadth of education that employers cherish.
