The Cotsakos College of Business program in accounting (B.S.) features a curriculum that is balanced between general education, accounting, and other related business courses. In preparing students to pursue careers in either public or private accounting, the program:
- helps students to meet the demands of the accounting profession or continue on to graduate study.
- familiarizes students with financial, institutional, and governmental issues and regulations.
- increases skills in problem-solving, analysis, and technological proficiency.
- encourages and enhances presentation and communication skills.
- exposes students to technology, software, and information systems specific to both the accounting profession as well as the broader business and financial professions.
- guides students who may wish to pursue professional certification as a certified public accountant, certified management accountant, or certified internal auditor.
- international accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Less than 30 percent of business schools have achieved such recognition of program excellence.
- world-class facilities. Students work in the Global Financial Services Institute's Financial Learning Center, one of the few trading rooms found in an academic environment, and the Russ Berrie Professional Sales Laboratory.
- distinguished faculty, who integrate corporate, organizational, and other professional experience into the classroom experience.
