Learn the language of business by studying accounting.

Accountants ensure that managers communicate the firm's financial performance to creditors and investors in an accurate and consistent way.

Expert faculty who are current in their field with business experience and updated on CPA licensure requirements teach classes and provide advice on internships and careers.
