The School of Accounting (SOA) is one of five academic units (finance, marketing, management, and operations and business analysis being the other four) that make up the Lundquist College of Business (Lundquist), which is one of nine colleges and schools within the University of Oregon (UO).
The mission of the SOA is threefold: to focus on high-quality education by providing excellent undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral programs; to advance scholarship through the production of basic research published in high-quality academic journals; and to make an important impact on the accounting and business communities in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
Engagement with members of the accounting profession shapes our school. In accordance with our mission, we work to engage with accounting professionals regularly, which often translates to updates in our curriculum and programming. Through our advisory board, the Accounting Circle, and memberships in professional organizations such as the Oregon Society of CPAs, our faculty have frequent interactions with outside constituents working in the accounting profession, which provide opportunities for revisions to courses to better prepare our students. To glimpse some of the outcomes of alumni and donor investments in accounting education, please see our Prospectus, the school's annual magazine.
