A minor in accounting complements any degree with courses that provide an overview of both legal and business practices. Students will gain an understanding of taxation and information systems, as well as the financial and managerial fields of accounting.
This certificate is appropriate for students in any field who want to learn the basics of business budgeting and reporting. The courses in this certificate can be applied towards a business or accounting major, but can also be useful as a stand-alone credential for anyone who might be thinking of entering business from a non-business major or perhaps running a small business. Students will learn the basic principles of accounting, debit and credit, account classification, and preparation of basic financial statements as well as use of spreadsheet and other computer applications. Students will also learn the concepts of cost accounting and the use of accounting as a decision-making tool for management.
