Program description
The Accounting option is designed to complement the broader-based Business Administration core. Students develop skills to work in organizations and be effective decision-makers with a focus on the accounting aspects of business. Areas stressed within the accounting discipline include recording and reporting of financial data under generally accepted accounting principles, understanding tax law and its effect on business decisions, auditing financial statements using generally accepted auditing principles, understanding accounting information systems, understanding the composition of consolidated financial statements, and gathering and using cost data for planning and control decisions. Electives provide further study in public-sector accounting, taxation, auditing and other areas. If you wish to pursue a career in public accounting and be eligible to sit for the CPA exam, you are required to have an additional 45 quarter credits (30 semester hours) beyond the undergraduate degree requirement. The Milgard School offers an opportunity to take additional undergraduate and graduate business coursework. Other programs at the university can provide additional non-business learning opportunities.
