School of Accountancy
Accounting: The Language of Business
Accounting is the measurement, processing and communication of financial information.
Other aspects of accounting include tax compliance and planning, providing assurance
on financial statements and IT systems, advising on technology and IT issues, designing
and implementing business processes, and assisting in mergers and acquisitions. The
School of Accountancy offers programs designed to prepare graduates for the challenges
and opportunities that await them after graduation, including how to use innovative
technologies to address these challenges and opportunities. Our programs provide
a comprehensive education in accounting principles and business fundamentals. An
accounting degree from Southern Miss will provide you with many career options given
the breadth and scope of knowledge acquired.
While at Southern Miss, accounting students can complete an internship, participate
in our chapter of Beta Alpha Psi and the Center for the Public Trust, participate
in many professional development opportunities delivered by accounting and business
professionals, and ultimately sit for the nationally administrated Certified Public
Accountant (CPA) Examination or other accounting related professional exams. In addition,
our School of Accountancy takes pride in holding separate accounting accreditation
by AACSB International, placing our program among only 1% of schools worldwide offering
a degree in business that hold separate AACSB accounting accreditation.
