Bachelor of Arts in Accounting

The world economy has entered an era of global interaction on a scale rarely experienced before. Financial markets in various parts of the world operate twenty-four hours a day as capital seeks involvement in this global economy. Countries that are still mostly agrarian are forming active stock markets. Trade agreements in the European Community and North America, the breakup of the former Soviet Union, the emergence of China as an economic power and the commercial development of many countries in Southeast Asia and South America are just few examples of the forces at work.

After a long period of indifference, the importance of international accounting standards and international auditing standards to the free flow of capital throughout the world has resulted in heightened interest in the work of International Accounting Standards Committee on international accounting standards and the International Federation of Accountants on international auditing standards. Within developing countries, business enterprises must develop internal management controls that allow them to compete in a world market. Government units, consequently, just work with and regulate this growing market economy. The rapid, and sometimes startling, social, political, technological, and economic changes that are taking place in the world economy have led to increasing recognition of the key role that accounting and accountants in all countries play in the process of economic development. This recognition, in turn, emphasizes the need for quality accounting education that the major in accounting provides.

The objective of the accounting major is to provide conceptual and practical knowledge to graduates who will prepare, report and analyze economic and financial information used for making sound ,managerial decisions.

Students who major in Accounting are not allowed to have a major or a minor in Business Administration.

Students must complete a minimum of 127 credit hours for the bachelor's degree in accounting:
