One Ball State Day is becoming a tradition which inspires and unites the University community. During this time of national and world-wide crisis, that has never been truer. The Miller College of Business is incredibly proud of the passion and resilience of our Ball State students. Should you feel compelled to support the next generation of Cardinal alumni, please consider a gift to the Jack Beyerl Student Emergency Aid fund on One Ball State Day. Funds to specifically support Miller students are listed for your consideration as well. From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of every student, thank you.
Only with external support like yours can we maintain the resources needed to provide an outstanding education to our accounting students. Your additional support is crucial to our success.
The Paul W. Parkison Department of Accounting continues to build toward an even greater future. We have added a second MS-Accounting track focused on research and analytics to prepare our students for additional career possibilities. Our graduate and undergraduate accounting programs continue to be ranked among the best in the nation. We are confident that the Department of Accounting will continue to deserve your support.
“The staff and faculty are an amazing group of people that will cheer you on in your successes and help you get back up after your failures. They truly care about each and every student.” –Izzy Beebe, '20
"The accounting faculty have helped me in my journey thus far. Not from just an education standpoint, but from a career and general life standpoint as well. They are dedicated to helping us succeed and do everything in their power to ensure we do so!" –Trevell Marshall, MS summer '20
"The only reason I came back to Ball State was because of the accounting faculty. They encourage and help me not only in the classroom, but in my personal life as well. They truly go above and beyond for their students and I am so thankful for all of them,” –Kylie O’Shea, MS summer '20
“During my three years as a student worker, I’ve heard so many life lessons, wise words, funny stories, and helpful pieces of advice. One of the best lessons I have learned is to focus on balance, particularly since accounting is such a demanding career. Going into college, we all have so many expectations-having perfect grades and lots of friends, getting enough sleep, and eating right, etc. That puts so much stress on all of us, so it’s important to stay flexible, set realistic expectations and pursue what you love.” –Bekah Bales, '16
“The department faculty have guided, mentored and supported me every step of the way. If you put in the time and effort, the faculty simply will not let you fail.” –Emily Denney, '18
“The Accounting faculty have played a large part in my life throughout my time at Ball State because their influence goes far beyond the classroom. In addition to helping me find full-time employment, I’ve learned both the technical and soft skills I’ll need to be successful in my future endeavors.”
–Josh Geis, MS summer '20
“The Department of Accounting is the reason that my life in college has been easy and enjoyable. Each person in the department genuinely cares for its students, and that is not something that you see everywhere.They want to see everyone not only succeed, but also that each person is happy in their collegiate experience and in post-college life. I wouldn't trade my experience here with anything.” –Jesse Bruening, MS Summer ’20
