Accounting and Finance  


Accounting Minor 

The Accounting and Finance Department works with other departments in the School of Business to provide all business majors with basic business knowledge to assist them in their chosen fields. This education is designed to enable students to compete as professionals in business, government and nonprofit institutions, with due consideration for issues concerning globalization, ethics and advancing technology.

The Accounting  Concentration focuses on accounting theory and accounting as the language of business. It is intended for students whose goal is to participate in the accounting aspects of various organizations. Within this program of study, students have the opportunity to participate in community activities and obtain practical knowledge from actual experiences as well as from faculty.

The Finance  Concentration provides students with a broad understanding of financial concepts and equips them with analytical, critical thinking and decision making tools. Students concentrating in finance learn to conduct risk-return analysis, financial analysis and asset valuation. The program prepares students to pursue financial management careers in domestic and multinational corporations and financial institutions.

 The Accounting & Finance  Concentration is a cross-functional program designed to prepare students for work in the rapidly evolving world of corporate finance where the finance professional needs not only a solid background in finance, but a thorough understanding of generally accepted principles of accounting.
