Students enrolled in this program will participate in a comprehensive learning experience through the challenges of increasingly complex levels of accounting study. In addition, students will have the opportunity to further enhance and master their accounting skills by selecting an accounting elective or by gaining real world experience through participation in an accounting internship program.
