BS in Accounting

AACSB Accreditation

The accounting degree prepares students for professional careers in the private and public sectors. The accounting major is designed to produce accounting professionals who can both generate and apply financial information to solve business problems. Our students learn principles of business and accounting as well as the specific skills and specialized technical knowledge necessary for success in the dynamic field of accounting. Our program emphasizes ethics, critical thinking, written and verbal communication, and effective use and understanding of technology. Our graduates are employed by the assurance, tax advisory, and consulting groups of the top accounting firms as well as Fortune 100 companies. Our proximity to the nation’s capitol provides unique opportunities for our graduates to work in government and in the federal practices of public accounting firms.

In recent years, our accounting program was the only accounting program operating in South Korea to possess the AACSB’s accounting accreditation during that accreditation’s existence, and our program will continue to provide only the highest quality of education.
