Undergraduate Major - Learning Goals
The goal of our undergraduate program is to prepare students for entry into staff accounting positions in companies, government or not-for-profit organizations. Therefore, we emphasize a broad business core enhanced by rigorous accounting major courses that result in strong general accounting fundamentals. Moreover, we include an experiential component in our program so that our students have the opportunity to learn through applying the concepts studied in the classroom.

Our skill area goals are to have our graduates demonstrate effective business writing, critical thinking and presentation skills, all skills deemed critical to success for business professionals.
