Preparing Accounting Professionals to Shape the Global Business Environment.

The school is named after Dr. Charles W. Lamden, who was the driving force in the founding of SDSU's College of Business Administration in 1955 and served as the college's first dean from 1955 to 1965. The school was the first accounting program in California and one of the first in the U.S. to gain accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 1982.

We have three active students organizations on campus—ALPFA, Beta Alpha Psi, and Student Accounting Society—and SDSU's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), which has operated on campus for over 20 years and prepares over 800 individual federal and state tax returns each year.

CalCPA 100 percent member

As a CalCPA 100% Membership School, our full-time and part-time students who have never been a licensed CPA, nor achieved a bachelor's degree are eligible to apply for free student membership. 

Membership Resources

Our vision is to promote an educational environment worthy of students’ and the accounting profession’s trust through:

  • Rigorous and engaging academic programs that enable students to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge in the global field of accounting
  • Core values of the accounting profession—ethics, technical competence, communication, and global perspective—embedded throughout our academic programs to provide the foundation for our students to positively affect the dynamic business environment
  • Research and interactions with the business community that benefit our students and extend our reach to academics and professionals around the world.

Read our 2021-2022 Annual Highlights Report to see all that we have accomplished.

A position of involvement, support, and commitment to educational excellence.

The purpose of the Leadership Advisory Board (LAB) is to serve as a bridge between the business community and the Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy (the School).  The specific objectives of the LAB are to:

  • Promote opportunities for students to enrich their education through interactions with business professionals, internships, as well as facilitate job-seeking activities;
  • Provide guidance on curriculum and academic programs;
  • Support the solicitation and cultivation of private philanthropic support for the School;
  • Connect faculty with the business community to increase the impact of their research and teaching; and
  • Provide input on the continuous strategic planning of the School and how the School can enhance its impact on various stakeholder groups
