Accounting

Fermanian School of Business

Do you pour over months of invoices and receipts looking for that 12-cent discrepancy in your checkbook? Do you get satisfaction by collecting, organizing, and equating loads of numbers and data? Accounting is the backbone to a company’s financial information - whether it be a multi-million dollar conglomerate or a small dry cleaning shop. Having competency in the area of accounting can mean ending the year in the black instead of in the red. If you are the kind of person that gets it right - no matter what - accounting is the major for you.

Overview

We offer a major and a minor in accounting. To begin your academic career, you'll take lower division courses in economics, accounting, management, and computer science.

To be an accounting major, you'll need a personal laptop or notebook.
