Accountants are more than just number crunchers; they’re influencers. Accounting students learn how to use their inquisitive minds and fluency with figures to help businesses make their most important decisions.
Accounting is for the detectives, the critical thinkers, and the interpreters. Accountants can read the bottom line, and in between the lines, to understand the nuts and bolts of how a business works. Highly sought-after advisors, accountants paint a picture of the health of a business – guarding it against pitfalls and opening doors to new growth opportunities.
The curriculum prepares students to perform a broad range of accounting, auditing, tax and consulting activities to steer employers and clients in a sound financial direction. Students take courses in financial reporting, managerial accounting, taxation, and information systems. Our nationally accredited program assures students a quality education.
Accounting graduates work for some of the largest global public accounting firms, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, KPMG and Grant Thornton, as well as regional and local firms. Other accounting majors begin their careers in the private sector, or with government agencies. Recruiters include: Aetna, General Electric, IBM, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon, and government agencies, including the FBI, IRS and SEC.
