Message from the Chair

In an information age and globalized economy, the most valuable resource is information; information that is relevant, reliable and useful for investors, lenders and other stakeholders to make informed decisions.  Accounting is the language of business that provides critical, far reaching, information about a firm’s income, financial position, cash flows and relative position within the industry. 

NCCU accounting graduates are among the best as evidenced by their success in professional certifications such as CPA, and CMA. Many of our accounting graduates have gone on to pursue post-graduate studies such as Law, MAcc and MBA.  NCCU accounting graduates have also been placed in firms such as IBM, CISCO, Sysco, Caterpillar, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and Ernst & Young.

Accounting faculty at NCCU are also known regionally for their research and teaching.  NCCU accounting faculty members have published in nationally recognized journals such as The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, Strategic Management Journal, Accounting Organizations and Society and Journal of Accounting and Public Policy.  We, at NCCU, take special pride in teaching.  Class sizes are small with an average student teacher ratio of about 15:1.  Teaching is personal and faculty members know most of our students by names.

NCCU is also very active in professional organizations, especially North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants (NCACPA) National Association of Black Accountants (NABA).  Our students attend the annual NABA conference for internships, scholarships and job placements.

On behalf of the faculty, staff, staff, students and alumni, I welcome you to discover NCCU Accounting, the success stories of our graduates and discuss with us the rewarding careers that await our accounting graduates.
