Department of Accounting

The Department of Accounting, is chaired by Instructor Bernard Bropleh, Mr. Bropleh is a faculty member in the A. Romeo Horton College of Business and Public Administration where  he has been lecturing for several years. Mr. Bropleh is a 1980 graduate of the University of Liberia with a Bachelor degree in Accounting, He also earns a Master’s degree in Finance in 1994, lived and worked in the United States for 19 years. In Liberia, Mr. Bropleh worked as an auditor. In 2012, he joined the University of Liberia, working as a part – timer in Accounting Department. He later became a full – time Faculty in January 2016 in the department. He rose from an Instructor to Course Coordinator between 2017 and 2018 in the Accounting Department. Based on his exposure to the department over the years, Mr. Bropleh has identified a lot of shortfalls that he thinks need to be addressed gradually. He comes to the new position with a vision to localize Accounting concepts by developing textbooks for the department so that they become a lot more explicit to students and reflect the Liberian business culture as compared to what they are reading now. Using textbooks with references that are a little more abstract to students, Mr. Bropleh considers the learning process a little more challenging and therefore wants to see that during his time as Accounting Department Chair, textbooks can be developed with localized concepts for students to have better understanding of the course. His desire for such initiative within the department is driven by the fact that students are being taught from Accounting books that basically reference transactions concepts applied by foreign businesses and companies like U.S. – based McDonald’s and Walmart, instead of Liberian – based companies and businesses like CEMENCO, City Builders, Exclusive Supermarket and Jeety to reflect transactions that have a nature of Liberian culture. Chairman Bropleh emphasizes the need for an outreach to the communities, particularly the business world, the banking sector, the government and exposure for the students in terms of internships, interview techniques that they lack and expending more towards the automated process in Accounting as compared to the traditional way of Accounting. Cognizant that the modern way of Accounting is done through automation, Mr. Bropleh wants to see Accounting students adequately prepared for today’s realities.
