Accounting

Accounting is a two-year program combining two areas experiencing rapid growth: accounting and information technology. Electronic commerce, direct business-to-business communication, paperless work processes, and many other technology-intensive innovations have created new challenges and opportunities for accountants who also have expertise in information systems. Many traditional accounting functions are now embodied in systems that require a different combination of technical and financial knowledge. This program provides the knowledge and skills with which to meet the challenges and opportunities of a world increasingly driven by information technology.

Graduates of this program will be equipped to work in accounting, auditing or information systems departments for accounting professional service firms, software vendors or companies that have integrated sophisticated business systems for transaction processing and decision support. Many former graduates also successfully pass the CPA exam and become Certified Public Accountants.
