Accounting Degree Program

Program Description

The Meinders School of Business (MSB) Department of Accounting is well connected to the Business Community and exceptionally student-focused. Accounting firms (including the Big Four), Fortune 500 corporations and government employers, among others, enthusiastically recruit MSB MSA graduates. Our graduates typically must decide between multiple job offers—a nice decision with which to wrestle. If you are not yet familiar with the employer demand for Accounting graduates, you might want to read “Demand for Accounting reaches all-time high,” a June 2013 Journal of Accountancy article.
