School Of Accountancy

School of Accountancy

Every organization, both for-profit and non-for-profit, must have talented and professional accountants to be successful. With a degree in accounting from Auburn University at Montgomery, you will be prepared to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available in private practice, government, business or nonprofit corporations.

The program provides both undergraduate and graduate courses that prepare the student for entry-level positions in accounting, for graduate studies, and for meeting the education requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) examination in Alabama.

Auburn University at Montgomery’s School of Accountancy is the only AACSB – International separately accredited accounting program in Montgomery and the River Region and ranks the program in the top of all business AACSB accredited programs in the world.

The School and the professional accounting community are linked by AUM’s Accounting Advisory Board , which advises the School in determining the direction of its instructional and non-instructional programs, and assisting with the placement of graduates.

State Initiative Program

This program was developed by the AUM School of Accountancy and the state government members of its Accounting Advisory Board. The program development was driven by the installation of the State of Alabama’s new accounting systems and the need for state employees to receive formal education to increase their accounting knowledge and skills. This State Initiative Program continues AUM’s commitment to facilitate the educational needs of the State of Alabama’s employees.

The Tuition Cost and Installment Plan is available for state employees.

The State Initiative Program consists of five accounting courses as required by the State of Alabama’s personnel classifications for the Account Clerk and the Accounting Technician positions.
