Executive Summary id="executive-summary"

About the Fisher School of Accounting

The Fisher School is committed to providing global thought leadership by developing future professional and academic leaders through graduate education programs, creating influential research, and engaging with the global professional community.

The School provides a detailed focus on the complex skill of accounting. As one of the nation’s few freestanding accounting schools, students in the program experience a curriculum dedicated to growth in an intricate field. As a professional school in a top 5 public research university, the School is committed to scholarly research, teaching, and service to advance knowledge and prepare future leaders for business, professional, and academic careers.

From the Director's Desk

Our students, faculty, and staff are happy to be back on campus. Recruiters, alumni, and friends of the School have returned to campus for in-person events, including our Women in Accounting Symposium, our Professional Speaker Series, Beta Alpha Psi and Fisher School of Accounting Council events, and numerous recruiting activities. We survived and–dare I say, prospered–in the last two very difficult years because of the tremendous resilience of our students, faculty, and staff. The support of our alumni and friends has provided us with the foundation to make all this possible.

Accounting data analytics remains an important focus for us. In the last two years, we have hired two accounting analytics faculty members and added both a graduate and undergraduate analytics course to our curriculum. Our MAcc will soon have a concentration in accounting analytics to complement the existing concentrations in auditing and taxation. We are engaged in continuous improvement to make sure our graduates are as well prepared as any in the world.

You will find much good news in this report. Our students and faculty continue to make us proud with significant awards and recognition. Our faculty are extremely productive in research and teaching. The Fisher School undergraduate and graduate programs continue their high national rankings. Achieving high rankings is not our goal. Rather, we believe these high rankings simply reflect the quality of everything we do at Fisher, Warrington, and UF.

The contents of this report contain only a sampling of our activities over the last year. Please visit our website often to keep up with Fisher news and learn even more about our students, faculty, programs, and alumni.
