Accounting and Finance
New government regulations, greater scrutiny of corporate finances, and business growth have fueled the need for accounting professionals with a deep knowledge of the important role accounting information plays in corporate decision-making.
Stuents can enhance their general business acumen while expanding their knowledge in such areas of finance as investment and portfolio management, international finance, bank management, risk management, or financial markets.
The accounting and finance specialization helps them expand their knowledge in areas such as budget planning and control, audit and evaluation of controls, and financial measurement, documentation, and reporting. This specialization is also designed to help budding managers build the strategic perspective they need to interact effectively with executive management and strengthen their ability to succeed in middle and senior management positions. Past stuents who chose this specialization are now pursuing middle – to senior-level management positions in financial institutions or finance departments. Opportunities are also available in accounting, auditing, and other financial recording and reporting functions.
