The major in accounting is designed to provide students with the general business and accounting knowledge necessary for them to succeed as professional accountants. As accounting is a dynamic field, all accounting majors will learn how to keep their knowledge up to date so they can continue to grow throughout their professional careers. Accounting majors will also acquire the communication, technical, and interpersonal skills necessary to successfully resolve complex problems in unstructured settings. Accounting majors will also benefit from participation in extracurricular activities and organizations such as Beta Alpha Psi, the national accounting honorary fraternity.
Highly motivated students are also able to participate in our 3+1 BSBA and MS in Accounting program with the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business. Students are able to earn both degrees in only four years, and those who qualify for merit-based scholarships may pay the same tuition as if they were only earning an undergraduate degree.
