Bachelor of Science Degrees
Become a leader -- in your community and in the world of business. A bachelor’s degree in business can make it happen. You can choose your focus: accounting, business and administration, business economics, finance, management or marketing.
Bachelor of Science in Accounting
Our accounting program ranks among the best in the country. Ours is among the less than one percent of the accounting programs in the nation that hold accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International for both the college and the accounting program. All of the “Big 4” accounting firms and many top private companies recruit our students. That’s because our graduates are prepared for the challenges of an accounting career in business, with non-profit organizations or elsewhere thanks to our flexible curriculum, research opportunities and instruction from world-class faculty.
