Department of Accounting Endowments

Department of Accounting Endowments 

Here at the McCombs Department of Accounting, we rely on our many friends and alumni to contribute to our continued success. Thanks to current use funds and endowments, we are able to meet and exceed the standards that make this one of the nation’s most esteemed accounting programs. We apply current use funds immediately to new initiatives (ex: The Deloitte & Touche Fund for Excellence in Education). Endowed funds preserve principal and yield about a 5% return for current spending. Through these two types of funding we are able to build robust department “excellence” funds, which provide for students, faculty instructional development, and research.
This income:

  • Sends exceptional students to study abroad
  • Augments the development of dedicated lecturers through trips to conferences and seminars
  • Supports outstanding research through the purchase of international financial data
  • Employs eager research assistants to cultivate new knowledge and advance our curriculum
