Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Dillard College of Business Administration at Midwestern State University!

As a 1984 accounting graduate of Midwestern State University, I know that the education that I received here provided a strong foundation for my professional career.  My personal successes—working as a CPA in public practice, serving as the Research Manager for the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, co-authoring books, and earning a Ph.D—are in no small measure due to the outstanding instruction and personal interaction that I had with my Midwestern professors.   Now, as Dean of the Dillard College, I can assure you that our College strives to continually improve upon the standard of excellence that our alumni and employers have grown to expect.
