Major, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Degree

The design of the undergraduate degree for accounting students is to provide students with sufficient technical and professional accounting knowledge as well as the skills that form the foundation for a career in accounting and to engage in a life-long learning process. The Accountancy program has identified three professional knowledge and skill areas, which are 1) professional accounting knowledge; 2) professional accounting skills; and 3) professional orientation. Within each of these three key areas, key program outcomes are identified.

  • Measurement, recording, analysis, validation, interpretation, and communication of financial, managerial and other business information.
  • Ethical and regulatory environments in which accountants work.
  • Business processes and internal control.
  • Risk assessment and assurance for financial and non-financial reporting.
  • Tax policy and compliance for individuals.
  • Tax policy and compliance for taxable and non-taxable entities. Professional Accounting Skills - each student can demonstrate basic professional skills in the following areas:
  • Written communication.
  • Use of information technology to support business processes and decision-making.
  • Problem solving / critical thinking skills.
  • Researching appropriate resources to resolve accounting related issues. Professional Orientation - students can demonstrate an awareness of the following professional areas associated with success in the accounting profession:
