Welcome to the Department of Accounting at Frostburg State University. Two accounting programs are available in the College of Business, a BS/BA in Accounting and a combined BS/BA in Accounting/MBA option.  

We prepare students for careers and certifications in many areas of the accounting profession: public accounting, internal auditing, nonprofit accounting and management accounting.  Among the certifications our students pursue are the CPA (Certified Public Accountant), CMA (Certified Management Accountant), CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) and CIA (Certified Internal Auditor).  A senior executive director with staffing firm Robert Half International says, “Demand (for accountants) is off the charts and it is an excellent time to be an accountant.” According to the AICPA, hiring of new accounting graduates in CPA (public accounting) firms alone grew 21% in 2012 over 2010 hiring and a hefty 58% over 2008 hiring.

Our students receive attention in small classroom settings and are taught by full-time faculty with diverse accounting backgrounds and professional certifications.  Students are assigned an academic advisor from the Accounting Department and we take pride in mentoring our students and maintaining relationships long after graduation.

We are glad you visited us on the web!


Student Quote

“I am a transfer student from a large university.  In comparison, the engagement I share with my professors at FSU is astronomical.  I have shown my professors that I want to succeed and they have reciprocated by giving me their time.  I am proud to say that I would not want to get my education anywhere else.”

-Joseph Howser
