The Department of Accounting and Finance has 27 full-time faculty holding the highest degree in their field and two full-time lecturers with Master’s degree. Nearly 90 percent of accounting faculty have CPA and/or other professional certifications and work experience. All graduate classes are taught by full-time faculty with class size limited to 25 students or less. This allows for great interaction and discussion of real-world issues. Beyond their teaching excellence, Accounting and Finance faculty actively mentor students and seek opportunities to connect them with accounting firms and other organizations. This opportunity to gain real-world experience, coupled with the chance to build relationships with people who can provide references, puts EMU Accounting and Finance students ahead of their peers.
