Message from the Director
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the LIU Post School of Professional Accountancy. I am delighted to have the opportunity to highlight our School and its quality academic programs.
As a LIU Post School of Professional Accountancy student, you will be part of a vibrant community that will assist you in achieving your personal and professional goals. At the center of this community is Lorber Hall, a completely renovated mansion (circa 1920s) and home to the School of Professional Accountancy. Lorber Hall is modernized, self-contained learning center with state-of-the art smart classrooms, wireless Internet access, a student lounge and faculty offices.
You will have one-to-one access to faculty with close ties to the profession and who possess an unmatched combination of professional experience and academic credentials. Our faculty members are experts in their fields and have been recognized for their outstanding teaching skills and contributions to the profession. You also will have the opportunity to participate in the many events and meetings sponsored by the LIU Post Accounting Society and the Kappa Omicron Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi.
The School, working in concert with a well-respected Advisory Board comprised of prominent individuals from the profession, is constantly working to improve its programs and to provide the highest quality education to its students. Our undergraduate and graduate programs incorporate current accounting topics and integrate the latest in technology. Undergraduate majors use laptops in all accounting classes beyond principles. The graduate programs offer evening courses and include a number of courses that are delivered in a blended-learning format, which combines in-class and online meetings. The blended format allows our students to manage their schedules more efficiently and gives them the flexibility to pursue internship and employment opportunities while completing their studies.
Our programs include the B.S. in Accountancy (129 credits), the Minor in Accountancy (18 credits), the Accelerated B.S./M.S. in Accountancy (153 credits), Accelerated B.S./M.B.A. in Accountancy (159 credits), the M.S. in Accountancy (30 credits), and the M.S. in Taxation (30 credits). The M.S. in Accountancy and accelerated programs have been designed to satisfy the 150-hour educational requirement adopted by a number of states and are CPA licensure-qualifying in New York State.
I enthusiastically encourage you to explore the educational opportunities available at the LIU Post School of Professional Accountancy. If you are looking for a school with up-to-date programs, knowledgeable and engaged faculty, small class sizes, and a solid job placement record, then this is the place for you.
