Accounting (B.B.A.)

The field of accounting has offered a very strong job market for decades, and this is projected to continue in the foreseeable future. Both the supply of and the demand for accounting graduates continues to grow, with the demand outpacing the supply in many years.

The field of accounting is diverse, with many possible areas of practice such as tax, auditing, management accounting, and forensic accounting—and accounting is often the educational background for senior management of business firms. The accounting faculty have a wealth of experience in both public and private accounting to share with accounting majors. The faculty maintain professional certifications as Certified Public Accountants (CPA), as a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) and as a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).
