07/11/2019

LSU of Alexandria is launching a new accounting degree in August announced Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA, Coordinator of Accounting, for the LSUA Department of Business Administration.

Now students in central Louisiana and throughout the state can earn a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in both a traditional and 100% online format. “The degree equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful completion of the CPA exam and for entry into public accounting, industry, or governmental/non-profit employment,” states Dr. Lachney.

“An accounting program which prepares students for the CPA exam is much needed in central Louisiana,” says Business Administration Chair Dr. Randall Dupont. Studies show that the central Louisiana region needs approximately twice as many accountants than are currently employed by area businesses. In addition, the Louisiana Workforce Commission has rated the field of accounting as a 5-star occupation for its high pay and stability.

The new degree follows the department’s recent announcement of accreditation. In June, LSUA received a 10-year internationally-recognized accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). “This accreditation certifies LSUA’s business program meets the highest academic standards,” says Dr. Dupont. The new accounting degree in combination with accreditation means LSUA offers an excellent educational opportunity in central Louisiana and for working professionals online.

Dr. Lachney states, “Accounting graduates can pursue a variety of paths after graduation.” Most seek careers in public accounting (including auditing, tax preparation, and business consulting) and private accounting (including financial accounting, management accounting, and internal auditing). Some graduates continue their education and earn a Master of Science in Accounting or Master of Science in Business Administration, with or without a concentration in Accounting. Others attend law school, he says.

Dr. Lachney and faculty have done an outstanding job in developing the curriculum, says Dr. Dupont. “Dr. Lachney originated the new degree after seeing the need among area employers. With his professional experience and CPA credentials, he was able to develop a student-centric program that will prepare students for a successful career in accounting and, at the same time, meet the needs of organizations for degreed accountants.”

Dr. Lachney expects the new accounting degree to attract both on campus and online students to fill the workforce need and provide high paying jobs in the community. In addition, working professionals who already have a bachelor’s degree in business or non-business programs can enroll for classes to meet the education requirements to sit for the CPA exam.

In anticipation of the new program, the business department launched an Accounting Club this past year. Dr. Lachney, the club’s advisor, explained the purpose of the Accounting Club: “We strive to bring professions in a variety of fields and career stages to campus to show students the possibilities that exist following graduation. So far, guests have included local CPAs in industry and public practice, an FBI special agent, and other accounting professionals.”

The new degree combined with accreditation solidifies LSUA as a premier destination for a quality education in business and accounting. For more information on the accounting degree at LSU of Alexandria, please email Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA,, at [email protected].

Dr. Jerry Sanson is the latest recipient of the Max Bradbury Award for his article “Why Solomon Northup Still Matters: International Reaction to a Story of Slavery in the Red River Valley” published in the Winter-Spring 2018 issue of North Louisiana History, the journal of the North Louisiana Historical Association.

The Max Bradbury Award goes to the best article published in the journal during the year.

This is the second time Dr. Sanson has won the Bradbury. He was the recipient of the 2003 award for his article “Dissin’ the Kingfish: Anti-Longite Rhetoric in the 1936 and 1940 Louisiana Gubernatorial Elections.”

The Bradbury Award for the year’s best article was established in memory of Max V. Bradbury who was the association’s second editor and served as editor from 1958-1969. Under his tenure, he edited a fledgling newsletter with a few short historical pieces to a newsletter filled with enough articles to publish a journal that laid the groundwork for the North Louisiana History Journal.

The association established the Max Bradbury Award following his death in 1974.
