Accounting and Taxation

Accounting and Taxation Academic Areas

Area chair: Haim Mozes

Accounting is the language of business, and Fordham professors help their students to become fluent in that language. Core-level accounting classes give students the basic skills to interpret and analyze financial statements, while upper-level and special-topics courses—such as Corporate and Partnership Taxation, International Accounting, and Ethics in Financial Reporting—let them specialize their knowledge. Fordham's accounting faculty works with highly motivated students through the university's chapter of Beta Alpha Psi and routinely coaches teams of undergraduates and graduates in prestigious accounting competitions organized by multinational accounting firms.
