Program Description:

The School of Accounting at the University of Georgia was established in 1977 and named the J. M. Tull School of Accounting in 1978. The mission of the J. M. Tull School of Accounting is to pursue excellence in accounting education. As a professional school in a major public research university, we are committed to teaching, research, and service that advance the accounting discipline and prepare future leaders for business and academia.
The Tull School offers three degree programs: a BBA in accounting, a Master of Accountancy (MAcc), and a PhD. Each of these programs has been recognized nationally in recent years as one of the top ten accounting programs among public institutions. The success of Tull students has been equally impressive. Tull MAcc and BBA students continually set high marks in passing the CPA exam on their initial attempt. In recent years, our students in the MAcc and BBA programs have ranked 4th and 9th in the country, respectively. Tull BBA and MAcc graduates have also been selected several times for the nationally competitive Postgraduate Technical Assistant positions with the Financial Accounting Standards Board.
