        Major in Accountancy

        Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Accountancy Major

        Accounting is the "language of business." Financial statements drive all major decision-making in an organization. Students in this major not only learn the language of business but are trained in data analytics in preparation for the technology-driven world of professional services. A strong and diverse accounting curriculum encourages success on the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam.

        Prior to graduation, accounting majors are highly recruited by top companies for internship positions that often lead to full-time employment. Additionally, in your first year as a staff accountant, you are likely to interact with CFOs and controllers, establishing a powerful network and successful career.
