Majoring in Accounting involves the study of financial transactions. You’ll learn to gather, record, analyze and communicate financial information for individuals and organizations. What do investors need to know to assess performance? What reporting issues do low-income taxpayers face? How are lost funds traced? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any business or organization as you take 76 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Business Administration degree that will prepare you to take the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.
You'll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom via Business Club activities, service projects with organizations like the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program run by the Minnesota Department of Revenue, or even an internship. Because we design our accounting program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant degree if you’re considering a career as an accountant, auditor, budget analyst or other financial specialist.
