Our Accounting Major
Our Accounting degree is well established as one of the best accounting programs in the country — in fact, we were founded in 1917 as the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance. We start by giving you a firm understanding of accounting principles and practices, and then teach you how they are applied in the real world.
We have plenty of opportunities for specialization; you can structure your curriculum to focus on any number of key areas:
- Cost accounting
- External or internal auditing
- Financial accounting
- Information technology
Regardless of the emphasis you choose, our accounting program gives you a core of technical knowledge that provides you with a complete understanding of the design, implementation and review of a fully automated accounting system.
