1 Annual Report June, 2015 Executive Summary Graduates of the Accounting program continue to have success obtaining employment and on the CPA Exam. Faculty members are active in academic and professional organizations, maintain their professional and academic qualifications, and continue to publish academic, professional, and educational materials.

2 Annual Report Accounting Program Mission Statement The School of Accounting is a learning community committed to preparing students to be principled and engaged professionals who are able to apply accounting and business knowledge for the betterment of individuals and organizations. We value an environment of educational excellence in which: (1) students develop both technical and interpersonal skills necessary for successful professional accounting careers; (2) faculty create and disseminate meaningful intellectual contributions and actively participate in the academic and professional communities; and (3) stakeholders, including alumni, recruiters and others, desire long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with the School. Undergraduate Mission: The mission of the undergraduate accounting program is to prepare students for entry into highquality graduate programs and for positions in business that do not require postgraduate education. Since the BBA degree is part of the College of Business, it reflects the distinctive competencies of the College. In addition, the program delivers foundation accounting courses to all students in the College of Business and to students in a variety of programs across the University. Graduate Mission: The mission of the graduate accounting program is to provide a strong regional presence for advanced professional education that prepares students for success in the accounting profession by strengthening the students technical expertise, enhancing their understanding of professional responsibility, and improving their business skills necessary to compete in today s complex and changing business environment. I. 2014/2015 Academic Programs Student Success: The School s undergraduate mission is to prepare students for entry level employment or admission to quality graduate programs. The School s graduate mission is to prepare students for entry to the accounting profession. The School is notably successful in both these missions. Eight-three percent of 2014/15 BBA graduates had obtained employment or been admitted to a graduate program prior to graduation. Ninety-four percent of the Masters graduates had obtained employment prior to graduation. Starting salaries average around $ 60,000.

3 University initiatives: In conjunction with the most recent accreditation, the University implemented a campus-wide emphasis on ethical reasoning. Professor Louwers from the School contributed to the development of this initiative. Ethics has always been an integral part the accounting curriculum. Ethical Reasoning: The overwhelming majority of the School s graduates enter the public accounting profession, the only private profession with public responsibilities. While the Madison Collaborative encouraged integration of ethical reasoning throughout curricula, little change was necessary in the accounting curriculum. Responsibility for full and fair disclosure (i.e. the public trust) is a fundamental precept of accounting and is reinforced in every course. Additionally, specific courses stress the prevention and detection of fraud and compliance with laws, regulations and the profession s Code of Conduct. II. Funding The School of Accounting is an academic unit of the College of Business and is not separately funded through the University. The School is separate, however, with respect to private support. Student Financial Assistance Approximately $ 25,000 in scholarships were awarded to rising masters students. These were provided by support from major employers and earnings on School endowments. In addition, one of our masters students received a scholarship from the Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board in the amount of $ 10,000. The Sarbanes Oxley Act requires that a portion of penalties imposed on companies whose accounting disclosures are judged to be unsatisfactory be used to provide scholarships for students studying accounting and auditing. Endowment: The School has approximately $ 1 million in endowments intended to support student scholarships and faculty development and scholarship. The School s endowments have grown over 100% since Annual giving: The School receives approximately $ 130,000 per year from alumni, employers and others which is used to support student trips and scholarships and faculty development and scholarship. Included in these amount are funds provided by employers through faculty scholarships and professorships. Employer support: Twelve firms sponsored annual faculty scholarships, providing funds to support faculty or professional development activities. Four faculty hold professorships supported by endowments or continuing donor commitments. Faculty scholarship and professorships are summarized in the following table:

Ramsey Centennial Chair III. Ratings and Recognitions Accreditation: The School of Accounting and its programs are separately accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The School was reaccredited in the fall of The School is scheduled to apply for reaccreditation in Reputation among employers: The professional services industry is dominated by four international accounting firms (called the Big-4). These firms rank schools on the basis of number and quality of graduates hired as entry-level staff. Generally speaking, the top tier includes 35 to 60 schools, nationwide. James Madison University is now ranked in the highest tier by three of the firms on their national ranking. The fourth firm does not have a national ranking, but ranks by region. Again, JMU is ranked in the top tier of its MidAtlantic region. Faculty Scholarship: A study appearing in a 2014 issue of the American Accounting Association s 2014 Issues in Accounting Education ranks the JMU School of Accounting in the top five universities in the area of accounting education research. David Fordham, David Hayes and Tim Louwers who were ranked 11 th, 21 st and 41 st respectively in terms of publication productivity from among the 15,000 accounting faculty in the country. IV.
