The mission of the accounting program is consistent with the mission of the College of Business (COB) at Albany State University. The mission of the COB, through the scholarship of teaching and learning, is to prepare business professionals.

Additionally, students are encouraged to sit for certification examinations at the completion of the program. How has the program evolved over time? The number of students majoring in accounting as of the fall semester for the pass ten years is listed below

Accounting has always been considered a significant program within the COB. Accounting is the language of business. Accounting serves has the foundation for all other majors within COB. Thus the more students know about accounting, the more students know about the business. How does the program fit in the ASU Strategic Plan? Accounting is consistent in its focus with ASU Strategic Plan. ASU provides a largely African-American student population with a opportunity to receive a high quality functional education. It does his within an environment that challenges their intellects and respects their ethnicity. Accounting is the language of business, thus accounting graduates have greater mobility in the marketplace.

Other sources confirm that the median pay for bachelor s degree is $61,690 or $29.66 per hour. For the projected period between the years , 190,700 new accounting positions are projected. This is the highest for any major in COB. This converts into a national growth rate of 16%, a Georgia growth rate of.57% and a southwest Georgia growth rate of.48%. The projected demand of accounting majors will continue to be strong. Is the demand being met by other institutions of higher education in the state? The region? Yes, the demand is being met by other institutions in the state and nationally. Accounting is a significant major on many campuses. Accounting attracts some of the best and brightness students. How does the program meet the special mission of a HBCU institution?
