Azusa Pacific University founded the LP and Timothy Leung School of Accounting in 2012, thanks to an $8.6 million gift from LP and Bobbi Leung. Building on nearly 40 years of excellence in accounting education at Azusa Pacific University, the Leung School of Accounting offers undergraduate and graduate accounting degrees to prepare students for careers in the accounting profession. Our vision is to develop graduates with character and competence, infusing a Christian perspective throughout the curriculum.
The Leung School’s accounting major prepares students for accounting careers in public, private, and governmental accounting. The master’s in accounting is for accounting graduates pursuing careers as certified public accountants; it meets the accounting ethics and 150-hour requirements for CPAs, and is capped by the nation’s most successful CPA exam review course. All programs are taught by professors with academic and professional experience, and blend real-world applications with classroom theory, placing a high priority on internship and career placement.
The Leung School of Accounting is housed within Azusa Pacific’s School of Business and Management, and APU is recognized as one of the nation’s best schools by U.S.News & World Report and The Princeton Review.
