The purpose of the Master of Accountancy program is to provide the skills and knowledge necessary to be future leaders in the professional business community and the public sector for students who wish to specialize in the areas of accounting/information systems, auditing financial reporting and accounting/other fields of business.
The mission of the Department of Accounting at Virginia Commonwealth University is to prepare students for careers in accounting, to interpret and expand accounting knowledge, and to render service to the professional and academic communities. The department does so by (1) providing a learning environment in which students are encouraged to interact with others through identifying and solving accounting and business problems; (2) investigating, developing, and sharing knowledge which has the potential for significant influence on accounting, business, and education; and (3) interacting with the accounting profession, the business community, and the community at large.
