SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS
 

Vanessa, Accounting 2017

 

Students that study accounting often have several traits in common.  Many have the gift of explaining difficult concepts in a simple manner, figuring out puzzles, are math oriented, are good at planning, details and usually organized.   

MEET VANESSA ...  
"I am the most indecisive person on the planet, I took the most random classes from medical to accounting before choosing my major." Vanessa is the quiet, shy type and would normally never get involved.  "I liked the smaller class sizes, I couldn't hide in the background so it gave me more opportunities I never though I would have, like being the president of a club!"  (read Vanessa's full story)

MEET OUR FACULTY & STAFF

DEPARTMENT CHAIR

DAVID MALONE
department chair & professor

I  have the privilege of leading one of the very few accounting programs separately accredited by AACSB International, our national accrediting agency.  

Each offers our students a rich and diverse educational experience that has proven to be competitive with degrees from any other school one might attend.  Our graduates have gone on to jobs in public accounting with both national and regional firms, industry and government.  Those same graduates contribute to our communities in a robust way, having acquired an appreciation for public service through a professional education underpinned by an excellent liberal education.

At Weber State, we value the undergraduate experience.  While the School of Accounting & Taxation has pushed ahead in offering graduate programs, consistent with the demands of our profession, we remain dedicated to providing a unique undergraduate experience that sets us apart from many of our peer and competitor institutions.  Average class size in the undergraduate accounting curriculum is fewer than 30 students.  Accessibility to our curriculum is exceptionally flexible, with three courses offered through on-line instruction and every course offered either in the evening or on-line at least once a year.  As an open enrollment university, we embrace the mission to afford students opportunity that larger institutions often cannot accommodate. 

Welcome to Weber State University!
