Accounting graduates are well prepared for an accounting career, or to pursue a graduate degree.

Accounting is the language of business. Our accounting program curriculum is designed to equip graduates with technical knowledge, professional skills and personal attributes necessary for employment and growth in the accounting profession. In addition to making our graduates proficient in the language of business, we instill in them strong ethics and beliefs through the foundations of a strong liberal arts education. This combination makes our graduates unique and valuable assets to organizations.

Accounting majors may enroll in the 4+1 M.B.A. Program during their senior year. This option enables students to graduate with two degrees in five years: a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and an M.B.A.

Featured Courses:

  • Taxation
  • Auditing
  • Advanced Topics in Accounting
  • Managerial Accounting
  • Financial Accounting

Career Future:

Today, with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, students can pursue a variety of career paths beyond the traditional financial, managerial and tax accounting and auditing. A few of the many options available are:

  • Forensic Accounting
  • Budget Analyst
  • Business Valuation Specialist
  • Management Consultant
  • Information Systems Auditor.

An accounting major at Mount St. Joseph University will gain the necessary technical skills to qualify for the Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) or the Certificate in Management Accounting (C.M.A.) examination.
