The School of Accountancy at Louisiana Tech University is one of the oldest and most respected accounting programs in Louisiana. Tech has the only AACSB accounting-accredited program in the state that offers bachelors, masters, and doctoral accounting degrees. In fact, we were one of the first accounting-accredited programs in the United States, the very first in Louisiana. Moreover, the successful placement of Tech's graduates through the years continues to give our graduates an edge over others because of the strong relationships we have with accounting firms and the corporate world. This can mean a better, higher paying position when you leave Tech.

Our overall quality is measured in the success of our graduates. At Tech, students receive a broad liberal arts background, with an intensive foundation in accounting and business. They develop analytical, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills, and they master the overall knowledge and skills most appreciated by employers. As a result, we have numerous graduates who are Partners with "Big Four" and regional accounting firms, others who have succeeded in businesses of their own, and many who are Presidents, Chief Executive Officers, Vice Presidents, Chief Financial Officers, or in other key executive positions in large corporations. We have also placed graduates in government careers such as the FBI, IRS, and other state and national agencies. In short, our graduates play vital roles in a wide array of professional positions.

The School of Accounting at Louisiana Tech University is a charter member of the Federation of Schools of Accountancy and currently holds full membership in this organization. The school is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service for the benefit of our students, the public, and other constituencies. Rich tradition, pride, reputation for quality, success, and a superior education are ways to describe Tech's School of Accountancy, all within a public university with a friendly, private-college atmosphere.
