Department of Accounting

At the McCombs School of Business, the Department of Accounting is synonymous with acclaimed faculty and world-renowned researchers, who infuse the curriculum with cutting-edge ideas. Our accounting program continues to rank as the premier program in the nation, and the opportunities afforded to McCombs’ accounting students is unmatched in other comparable programs. However, as competition among other top accounting programs rises, we need your help now, more than ever, to retain our reputation for excellence.

"It is such an honor to hold the Deloitte & Touche Endowed Chair in Accounting at The University of Texas in Austin. I frequently get asked about what it means to be the Deloitte Chair. My friends, students, and business professionals are always curious as to how I got the designation and what it requires. My answer is that I got it based on teaching and research achievements, and that it requires me just to keep doing what I normally do – teaching and research. I explain that Deloitte contributes significant money to the Department (and McCombs) because they value education and research and really care about the success of McCombs faculty and students. The usual response from those who have inquired is something along the lines of 'wow, that is very impressive and you are quite lucky to have such support.' I could not agree more!"
