Accounting

The Accounting major helps students understand and master the conceptual framework used to measure and report an organization's economic events. In accordance with professional and ethical standards, students analyze and evaluate accounting practices and systems to understand how they should and do function in business entities. They learn fiduciary responsibility and professional accountability. Communication skills in conveying information to both internal and external stakeholders are developed. In addition, this major promotes skills in problem solving, decision-making, systems analysis, and planning within financial, economic, managerial, and technological contexts. Accounting is an important foundation for careers in finance, auditing and administration within both the public and private sectors.  Completion of this major does not guarantee eligibility to sit for CPA exams due to differences in state requirements. Students planning to sit for a CPA exam should work closely with their advisor on specific/additional requirements prior to graduation.
