Department of Accounting

The discipline of accounting is much more than mundane bookkeeping. Accounting is about the foundation for business success.


Accounting is the language of business and is an increasingly complex subject matter. This ensures there will always be a demand for specialists, who possess advanced knowledge of accounting. Earning a degree in accounting provides the skills needed to pursue this professional opportunity.

To study accounting is to study information systems and controls, financial reporting, analysis, taxation, decision-making, and managing technology, developing business plans, and formulating business strategy.

Individuals who like being challenged by a variety of situations and technologies and who enjoy identifying, analyzing, and solving problems are well-suited to majoring in accounting.
