Message from the Department Chair

Welcome to the Department of Accounting's Home Page. The Department is the University's largest academic Department serving approximately 1,100 students in its undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs. Accounting Department's faculty members are among the very best accounting professors in the country utilizing innovative approaches to learning and state-of-the-art educational learning tools.  Our mission and goals guide our success.

The Department is home to two very active student organizations, Beta Alpha Psi (National Honorary Society in Accounting) and the Accounting Society. These organizations meet weekly and host a number of important events such as the Fall Awards Breakfast, the Spring Awards Banquet, and offers mock interviews twice a year. The department also advises the campus chapter of ALPHA. The business community contributes generously to the Department's scholarship program. Last year, the Department awarded over $50,000 in scholarships at its awards functions.

An excellent advisement program is available to every student enrolled in the Department. The advisement offered by our faculty includes not only advice on how to plan your program but how to plan for a successful career in accounting, as well. This includes how to meet the state of California's new requirements for CPA exam candidates. If you cannot find the information you need on this Home Page, visit our Department office in Simpson Tower, F517 or call us at (323) 343-5256. We really are anxious to help you make the proper career choice and plan your college education.
