Accounting at Albany … a Tradition of Excellence
Welcome to the UAlbany Department of Accounting and Law's home page. Our department offers a wide range of accounting programs to suit our diverse student needs, a high quality faculty commensurate with our being part of a major research university, and a wide variety of student services and organization designed to make an education experience here a rewarding one.
We pride ourselves on our tradition of excellence. As expressed in our Mission Statement, this tradition begins with the education we provide our students -as attested to by our high pass rates on the CPA exam, our award-wining programs, and the high placement rates of our graduates. The accounting programs (BS and MS degree Programs in Accounting) offered by the University at Albany are among the few in the United States to have been accredited in accounting by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
This tradition continues with our faculty, who are active researchers and practitioners, and who bring this research and experience into their classrooms in order to provide an enriching experience for their students.
And finally, this tradition continues with our involvement and leadership in the profession and our greater community.
Whether you are a prospective student, a current student, or alumni, we welcome your visit to our site.
