Mission & Philosophy of the Accounting Department

The mission of Department of Accounting is to create, debate and disseminate knowledge about the measurement and communication of financial and non-financial information that will inform our students, alumni, managers and capital market participants and facilitate rational financial, economic and policy decisions.

– Message from the Department Chairmen

Stern's Department of Accounting offers a wide range of courses and programs for students interested in acquiring the skills that will better enable them to serve the information needs of professional clients and the organizations that employ them.

We offer a Ph.D. degree with an emphasis in accounting as well as an M.B.A. degree with a major or double major in accounting. Students often select a menu of courses stressing financial statement analysis. In the undergraduate college, we offer two accounting majors - one with a C.P.A. emphasis; the other less technical in nature. The latter option is often taken together with finance or information systems as a double major. All students have access to the faculty of departments throughout the Stern School.

Our faculty are committed to the pursuit of excellence in their teaching and research activities. The Department is consistently ranked as one of the top accounting faculties in the United States, and we pride ourselves in the knowledge that more of our accounting graduates have entered the ranks of senior partner of the major accounting firms than any other business school.fa
