The bachelor of arts degree in accounting has been constructed on the assumption that contemporary study in accounting must build upon a broad base of liberal education. The plan of study is intended to develop the students’ capacity to make sound judgments in their eventual positions in management and administration and to endow them with the historical perspective necessary for an understanding of human values and motivations and the relationships between economic activity and society as a whole. All requirements for the degree can be completed on either campus.

A graduate with an accounting major has a broad exposure to business concepts and in depth knowledge of the accounting discipline. The alumni of this program would be prepared for entry level positions in the accounting profession and have sufficient accounting credits to sit for the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) and the Certified Management Accountants (CMA) examinations in most United States jurisdictions.

Preparation for the CPA and CMA examinations are integrated in the curriculum and the School offers courses specifically for the purpose of preparing candidates to take these professional examinations.

The School of Business is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The bachelor of arts degree in accounting is one of the degrees accredited by this international business program accrediting body.
