The Accounting Academic Department is exploring the development of a new managerial accounting-focused curriculum within the accounting concentration (e.g. electives and/or a distinct track). Students who choose this route will be focusing on preparation for the Certified Management Accountant designation and careers in accounting related to planning, analysis, performance management, internal control, risk management, and decision support. More information on the designation and the granting organization, the Institute of Management Accountants, can be found at

At this point, the Accounting Department is interested in learning the perspective of recruiting firms on this potential endeavor. To provide input, please enter your contact information below, and Thomas Vance, Ph.D. and Associate Professor in the CSU College of Business will reach out. 

Please contact Thomas Vance at with any questions.
