Mission Statement

The Department of Accounting, Taxation and Legal Studies in Business in the Frank G. Zarb School of Business  is committed to the advancement of knowledge and the preparation of individuals for careers in accounting and business. The faculty strives for excellence in teaching, research and service to the Department, the Zarb School of Business, the University, and the community. The Department is dedicated to providing students with the knowledge, skills and analytical tools necessary to become successful and ethical professionals. The Department encourages and values a mix of discipline-based scholarship, contributions to practice, and learning and pedagogical research. Given the Department’s primary focus on licensure-qualifying baccalaureate and applied graduate degree programs, and on undergraduate programs in legal studies in business, the Department expects a majority of the intellectual contributions to be of an applied nature. The Department supports professional interaction among faculty, practitioners and students and encourages involvement with local, regional, national and international organizations.
