Concentration in Accountancy

Lead Faculty: Dr. Consolacion Fajardo

This concentration is designed for those majoring in business administration with its broad base of business-related disciplines, but who also wish to gain the intermediate-level accounting knowledge and skills appropriate for careers in the accounting and finance departments of a business, nonprofit, or government entity.

Students are encouraged to seek a nationally recognized accounting designation such as the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) or CFM (Certified in Financial Management). Those who are considering a CPA designation (Certified Public Accountant) are best served by enrolling in the B.S. in Accountancy degree program.

Students are strongly advised to contact the above-named Faculty Advisor for guidance and recommendations as to academic preparation that will best meet their career objectives.
