Concentration in Accounting
The Accounting concentration can be combined with a major or another concentration in a nonbusiness area such as Church Ministries, Public Administration, Intercultural Studies or Information Systems to provide a solid foundation for working in a nonprofit, government or for-profit accounting position or another position that would benefit from accounting knowledge.
The concentration includes seven courses from the business core requirements to provide a basic foundation in accounting, economics, marketing, law, management, finance and strategic management. The concentration also includes the upper-division major requirements of operations management, human resource management, human behavior in organizations and three approved business elective credits.
