The accounting program provides business administration and liberal arts students with an understanding of the development and use of accounting records and statements, budgeting funds, and cash flow analysis. For this purpose a two-semester course is offered that covers the development and use of the records, accounts and financial statements of merchandising, service and manufacturing concerns, whether organized as proprietorships, partnerships or corporations.

The Heller College of Business faculty offer an accelerated BS in Business Administration/Master of Business Administration (MBA) program to eligible students.  Students entering this program can earn both bachelor's and master's degrees in less time than earning these degrees separately.
