The Accounting, Finance, and Law Department is the largest department in the Bob Gaglardi School of Business and Economics teaching over 160 course sections each year. Our main programs are the Accounting and Finance Majors and Minors in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), but we also offer Post-Baccalaureate Diplomas in Accounting and Finance, an Accounting Technician Diploma, and service courses in accounting, finance, and law to other academic units.

Our department has a balance of research and teaching faculty. The researchers have a wide range of referred publications, while teaching faculty write case studies, develop open educational resources, design and facilitate distance courses, work as consultants, serve on boards of directors, continue to practice law, participate in local politics, and are active members of CPA Canada, the CFA Institute, and the Law Society of British Columbia.
