We Train the Next Leaders of the Accounting Industry.
The Accounting department at the Wisconsin School of Business prepares students both to perform expertly in a role without which no business could function and to spearhead ground-breaking research. We offer three degrees: a BBA-which is ranked among the nation’s top 20 by U.S. News & World Report, a MAcc, and a Ph.D. MAcc students have two options: the five-year program, which integrates the master’s curriculum with the undergraduate or the two-year graduate program, which is appropriate for students with little or no accounting background.
Accounting department faculty fields of expertise include corporate governance, earnings management, equity valuation, health care accounting, health care financial management, internal controls and audit quality, international financial reporting standards, managerial accounting, Sarbanes-Oxley, securities regulation, strategic cost management, and taxes and federal tax policy.
The Arthur Andersen Center for Financial Reporting and Control and the Robert Beyer Center for Managerial Accounting and Control are the research and outreach centers that call the accounting department home.
