Utilize problem-solving and analytical skills that steer businesses toward financial success and help individuals make better decisions today.

Accountants record the data and processes of the business so that an accurate picture of the business is available and better decisions can be made. We offer an undergraduate accounting curriculum that covers financial accounting, financial reporting, managerial/cost accounting, tax, audit, forensic accounting, and accounting information systems.

Our Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.), a STEM-designated program, prepares students for eligibility to become certified public accountants. Different paths are available for students who wish to apply for the M.Acc., depending on their exposure to accounting classes as an undergraduate.
