Message from the Chair
Welcome to the North Carolina Central University School of Business Accounting Department! In an information age and a globalized economy, the most valuable resource is information: information that is relevant, reliable and useful for investors, lenders and other stakeholders in making informed decisions. Accounting is the language of business, providing 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 the Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) certification and the Certified Management Accountant (C.M.A.) certification. Many of our accounting graduates have gone on to pursue post-graduate studies such as law, Master of Accountancy (MAcc) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degrees. NCCU accounting graduates have also been placed in firms such as IBM, CISCO, Sysco, Caterpillar, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young.
Members of the 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 the 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 name.
NCCU is also very active in professional organizations, especially the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants (NCACPA) and the 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. Hear the success stories of our graduates and discuss with us the rewarding careers that await our accounting graduates.
