About Us

Welcome from the Chair

“We are proud that our faculty, students, alumni, and business partners represent some of the very best in the world.”

The Kelley School’s Department of Accounting is recognized as one of the best. Publications such as Business Week, U.S. News & World Report, and Public Accounting Report consistently rank our programs and faculty in the nation’s top 10. Our faculty members are top-rate researchers, instructors, and mentors who have the knowledge and passion to ensure that students master the skills necessary for today’s vibrant accounting environment.

We offer five degree programs—from undergraduate to doctoral—that are constantly updated to incorporate the latest knowledge and trends in accounting. Our undergraduates take a series of skills classes that improve their abilities to communicate, think creatively, create accounting information, and analyze accounting data. Most of our students complete internships with top employers, and they can develop leadership skills in our accounting societies.

To complement our traditional MBA, we offer an MBA in Accounting, a 3/2 program that is not offered anywhere else. Students complete both a Bachelor of Science and an MBA in Accounting in five years, gaining extensive training in accounting and participating in several consulting projects, one of which is usually based overseas. We also offer a one-year Master of Science in Accounting. While these two master’s degrees have different flavors, both will put you on the fast track to success.

Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Grant Thornton, BKD, Ford, and Microsoft are just a few of the employers who visit the Kelley School’s career services offices each year to interview and hire our graduates. In all our programs, placement rates at graduation are over 90 percent.

We are proud that our faculty, students, alumni, and business partners represent some of the very best in the world. I invite you to explore our site and learn more about them and our creative, successful academic programs.
