Accounting is an exciting and dynamic field. This minor will provide students with broad-based knowledge in the functional areas of accounting. Students will obtain a better understanding of the role that accounting plays in corporate accountability and fiscal responsibility. Students minoring in accounting may also obtain the requisite background to sit for professional examinations such as the Certified Management Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor exams.
Students who are majoring outside the School of Business Administration Business Programs may benefit from an opportunity to take a series of courses in business to enhance their academic programs. To provide this option, the School of Business Administration (SBA) has approved a series of structured minor programs that provide a sequence of courses that will enrich other disciplines, can be monitored by the administrative staff, and meet AACSB guidelines.
Students outside the School of Business Administration Business Programs may not take more than 24 credits in business (excluding EC 101 and EC 202, which count toward the general education requirement).
Students working toward a minor in business must take at least 15 credits from the School of Business Administration Business Programs (residency requirement).
The program of study that appears here applies to students who were admitted for the summer session of this catalog year and later. Students admitted prior to that term should select the appropriate catalog year of their admission.
