Outstanding Alumni

The Accountancy Department's many efforts and achievements are supported by our alumni. A process of recognizing our department's outstanding alums was started in 1983. Selection was based on:

  1. Their many professional achievements, and
  2. Their continued support for our department through sustained efforts to recruit our students; making presentations to our student organizations and classes; advising the department in designing new and innovative curriculum; providing financial support for scholarships, professorships and other needs; and representing our Department of Accountancy within their firms and in their professional efforts.
