The objective of the accounting curriculum sequence is to prepare students for a career, either in accounting or a related field. This curriculum is broad in scope and coverage, so it is relevant and useful for careers in public accounting, industry, financial institutions, government, information systems, law, and not-for-profit organizations.

There are three concentrations housed in the Accounting Department: (1) Accounting, (2) Accounting for Finance and Consulting, and (3) Accounting and Information Systems. Students are not permitted to concentrate in more than one of these.

Students outside of CSOM will be able to complete one of two minors in accounting, Accounting for CPAs and Accounting for Finance and Consulting. The requirements for a minor are based on a selection of the required and elective courses for the Accounting and the Accounting for Finance and Consulting concentrations.
