Choose between two pathways:
- Thesis option
- Project option: Business Analytics concentration
The Accounting major examines the factors influencing the design, provision, quality, use, and impact of financial and non-financial information on a variety of stakeholders, including investors, managers, auditors, creditors, and organizations.
Common areas of study include capital markets' use of information, judgment and decision making of auditors and managers, factors influencing information quality and use, accounting information systems, ethics, performance measurement, and contracting uses of accounting information.
A degree or major in accounting is required to be considered for this major. Though not required, work experience in the field of accounting is a valuable asset.
The Business Analytics concentration (BANA) blends coursework and a culminating experiential, applied project.
