Minor in Accounting

The Accounting profession continue to undergo significant changes, becoming both broader and more complex. Accountants are trusted, objective professionals who provide information for decision making and serve as business advisers. Many accountants land top executive positions because of their background, integrity, and skills developed through education and professional experience. The Accounting Minor is designed for students who complete other majors but wish to acquire significant knowledge related to financial and managerial accounting, taxation, auditing, and accounting information systems. The accounting program is accredited by AACSB – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
