Accounting BBA


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

Accounting is concerned primarily with (1) measuring income, expenditures, and wealth generated by a business enterprise, and (2) communicating information about the financial condition of economic organizations and the results of their financial activities. Thus, accounting is the language of business—the backbone of the free enterprise system.

The accounting major is designed to meet the needs of students preparing for accounting careers in business, government, not-for-profit organizations, or public accounting, including those who desire to secure, through state examination, the status of Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or that of Certified Management Accountant (CMA).

Students planning to sit for the CPA exam should consult their state’s Board of Public Accountancy before planning their accounting program. Each state has its own rules, regulations, and specific course requirements. Assistance may be obtained from the Accounting faculty.
