Vision, Mission, and Strategic Goals


The PSU Department of Accounting will strive to achieve national recognition for providing a high-quality accounting education.


The mission of the Department of Accounting is to support the Gladys A. Kelce College of Business and Pittsburg State University by providing the BBA with a major in accounting and with minors in accounting and internal auditing, fraud examination, and by providing the MBA with a concentration in accounting.  The primary emphasis is on the undergraduate program.

The Department is responsive to the needs of our stakeholders in developing programs which reflect the broader role of accounting in society.  These programs provide the foundation for the successful pursuit of professional certifications. 

The Department provides high quality educational opportunities primarily to students from Southeast Kansas and the adjacent regions, as well as to students from other countries.

The Department is committed to teaching, publishing intellectual contributions, and serving its key stakeholders.  Application of knowledge is emphasized in each of these three areas.  The teaching of students is of primary importance.
