Department of Accounting
The department of accounting at Kansas State University offers a rigorous curriculum for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students in the accounting department consistently have the highest GPA and ACT scores in the College of Business Administration, and they are driven and are sought after by major public accounting and industrial firms. Last year 109 accounting students completed internships, and 97 percent of the program's graduates find jobs after graduation or continue their education in a graduate program. For the 2018 - 2019 school year, the department awarded more than $265,000 in scholarships.
The accounting department has the distinction of holding separate accreditation from the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business, a designation that few accredited business schools have.
