Accounting

Accounting is the processes of organising, synthesising and presenting financial information for use in financial decision making. A sound knowledge of these processes is essential for the successful management of any business. Studying the major/minor in accounting provides students with a strong foundation in each of these processes. This major is designed for students who wish to gain professional accounting qualifications. There are sixteen courses within the academic plan that are compulsory for an accounting qualification plus an additional six broadening electives and a compulsory capstone in Accounting Theory and Financial Statement Analysis.
