How is the financial success of a company determined? What do investors need to know when deciding whether to invest in a business? Professionals refer to accounting reports and consult with accountants for the information they need to make strategic business decisions. A degree in accounting will prepare you for a rewarding career in industry, public, governmental or non-profit accounting.
The Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree program is designed to prepare graduates for many careers in industry, public, governmental or non-profit accounting.

Graduates of the Accounting program are well prepared for entry into the accounting profession and also have the background needed to advance into high-level management and finance positions.
