Black CPA #27: Milton Wilson, CPA

Milton Wilson, CPADr. Milton Wilson, CPA was Texas’ first African-American CPA. Licensed in 1952, he was among the nation’s first 100 African-American CPAs and was one of the first seven African-Americans to earn a doctoral degree in accounting. Dr. Wilson, as dean, led Texas Southern University’s (TSU) School of Business in 1967 to become the first historically black college or university to earn accreditation from the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In 1970, Wilson became dean of Howard University’s School of Business, which, in 1980, he also led to AACSB accreditation. He was the only dean to accomplish this at two African-American colleges.

During his tenure at TSU, he received visiting professorships at both Harvard University and the University of Chicago. At the time of his retirement, Dr. Wilson was credited with helping more African-American students receive degrees in business administration and become CPAs than any other business dean in the nation
