Leading the Way in Accounting Excellence
Best Value Schools, a top online resource for finding the college experience that’s right for you, has listed APU at No. 14 in its rankings for top accounting schools in the state of California, alongside such notable institutions as Cal State L.A., Vanguard, and USC.
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.”
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:
- Minimum 3.5 GPA required
- Up to $10,000 awarded per year
- Merit-based and need-based scholarships available.
- Leung School of Accounting Endowment, Stan Deal Award, Gabe De La Rosa Scholarship
- Minimum 3.3 GPA required
- 15%-100% scholarships awarded
- Leung School of Accounting Endowment, Leung School of Accounting Student Worker
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.
