The Bachelor of Science in Accounting (BACC) equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for managing a company or an organization’s financial information and tax documents. Accounting graduates pursue a variety of paths after graduation. Most seek careers in public accounting (including auditing, tax preparation, and business consulting) and private accounting (including financial accounting, management accounting, and internal auditing). Some continue their education and earn a Master of Science in Accounting or a Master of Business Administration with (or without) a concentration in Accounting. Others attend law school.
