The John T. Steed School of Accounting operates as a division within the Michael F. Price College of Business. The School of Accounting was established by the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma on July 22, 1982 and was awarded separate AACSB accreditation in 1983. In 2006, The School of Accounting received a generous bequest from the estate of David C. Steed. The gift provided for two endowed chairs, two endowed professorships, and endowed scholarships. In recognition of this gift, the School of Accounting was renamed the John T. Steed School of Accounting in honor of David Steed’s father, John T. Steed. Both John T. Steed and David C. Steed practiced as certified public accountants in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
The John T. Steed School of Accounting offers a major in Accounting for undergraduate students pursuing a Bachelors of Business Administration degree. We also offer a Masters of Accountancy degree. Students who are undergraduate Accounting majors may apply for the joint Bachelors of Business Administration/Masters of Accountancy (BMAcc) degree after they have completed 75 hours. The joint degree allows students to receive both their BBA and MAcc degrees upon graduation. We also offer a Ph.D degree with a concentration in Accounting.
