Accounting and Finance

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Accounting and Finance at UNCP. Our accounting program covers more accounting and auditing topics than the overwhelming majority of undergraduate programs across North Carolina and the nation. Consequently, successful graduates are that much better prepared for the future—whether graduate school, employment, or sitting for the CPA exam. We regularly have accounting graduates who pass the CPA exam without the benefit of a graduate program. Our finance track is designed to provide the foundational knowledge needed to permit graduates to seek employment and development in the various avenues available to finance professionals. Our finance program is available online as well as on campus. A minor in finance is available to nonbusiness students.

Teaching genuinely is “Job 1” here. And, importantly, our programs are about you—helping you meet your goals, helping you succeed, and providing you the basis for launching your career. Part of what that means is that being a professor is not just a job to our faculty; it is a passion. And, teaching is what we are most passionate about. We want to work with you, to interact with you and help you learn outside of class as well as in class. We work to find better, more productive ways to enhance your learning and preparedness year after year. In short, we care about our students. We will meet the responsibility of having high standards because we care about our students. We also will be there ready to assist you in meeting those high standards because we care.

Accounting and finance faculty members also are involved in scholarship and involved with our communities and professions. We author journal articles, books, continuing education courses, and more. We teach continuing education, work with businesses in different localities, provide financial literacy seminars, and serve in many other ways. The ultimate goal of this activity is to help us ensure that the education you receive is current, relevant, and as high quality as possible.

Accounting and finance continue to be among the career fields in high demand. If you, or others you know, are interested in establishing the foundation for your career and future in the type of environment we have in the Department of Accounting and Finance at UNCP, please contact us and learn more about our faculty and programs.
