Accounting, BBA

A bachelor degree in the field of accounting provides the knowledge and skills to succeed at almost anything in the business world.  It prepares students to determine how a business is doing and communicate this knowledge to clients or others in the business organization.  This program is designed to help students obtain accounting certifications such as CMA, CIA, and CFE.  The BBA in Accounting, along with the MBA - Accounting Concentration, can further prepare students for the CPA exam.
