On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting. We hope that you will take a moment to explore the site, learn about our programs, and meet our outstanding faculty and students.
The mission of the Dixon School of Accounting is to pursue excellence in accounting education. As a professional school in a major public research university, we are committed to teaching, research and service that advance the accounting discipline and prepare future leaders in business, government and academia. Our school seeks national prominence through its degree programs, production of research and other scholarly works, and professional service activities. For decades the School of Accounting has enjoyed a national reputation for excellence in accounting education and is viewed as a prime recruiting school by employers throughout the Southeast region. Demand for accounting graduates is strong, and our close ties to local, national and international firms give our graduates a competitive edge in the job market.
Our state-of-the-art curriculum provides students with technical expertise in the field and develops critical thinking, team-building, communication and information technology skills. We offer a four-year undergraduate Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), a Master of Science in Accounting (MSA), a Master of Science in Taxation (MST) and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Accounting (Ph.D.). Both the Dixon School of Accounting and the College of Business Administration are among an elite group of programs that are independently accredited by the AACSB.
As a Ph.D. granting school, our faculty includes a number of dedicated researchers who are considered leaders in their field of study. Three members of our faculty serve as editors of major accounting journals: Vicky Arnold, Behavioral Research in Accounting; Robin Roberts, Accounting and the Public Interest; and Donna Schmitt, Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research. Additionally, Dixon School faculty serve as reviewers and are on the editorial boards of over a dozen academic accounting journals. Recent graduates from our Ph.D. program have been well-placed at schools such as the University of Waterloo, University of San Diego and Kansas State University.
I believe that the Dixon School provides a wonderful place for students, faculty, staff, and stakeholders to meet and work. Please enjoy our website and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
