The undergraduate accounting degree has traditionally been recognized as one of the premier accounting degrees in the country. This recognition continues today. For the past six years (2006-2012), the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) accounting program has been ranked first in the United States according to U.S. News & World Report.
The objective of the BBA curriculum is to provide students with a broad overall education, solid grounding in the common body of knowledge of business administration, and exposure to accounting in sufficient depth to help them achieve entry-level competence for pursuit of a career in public accounting, government or industry.
Accounting coursework covers:
- the collection, recording, summarizing and interpretation of financial data,
- the uses of accounting data by management,
- the uses of accounting procedures in all phases of financial matters, and
- the uses of computers and other electronic means of handling accounting data.
