Leading the Way in Accounting Excellence

The LP and Timothy Leung School of Accounting’s vision is to “be a premier Christian accounting school, recognized as a thought leader on accounting character and competence to reflect the life of Christ and shine the light of Truth.”

LP Leung ’61 strives to make an impact in the community through supporting future accountants in APU’s School of Business and Management.

Our Programs

The school offers undergraduate and graduate accounting degrees that incorporate innovative courses in ethical accounting:


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. The endowment’s purpose is to promote Christian ethics in accounting, and toward that end provides various student scholarships:

Undergraduate Scholarships

  • Minimum 3.5 GPA required
  • Up to $5,000 awarded per year
  • Merit-based and need-based scholarships available.
  • Additional Accounting Scholarships: Stan Deal Scholarship, De La Rosa Scholarship, CliftonLarsonAllen LLP Scholarship

Accounting Programs Expand

A gift of more than $8 million from the Leung family allowed APU to broaden its accounting programs and establish the LP and Timothy Leung School of Accounting, housed in APU’s School of Business and Management, giving the accounting program the resources needed to expand its emphasis on strong academics, practical training, and teaching ethics.
