Program Details

Pursue a dynamic and robust business career with a BSBA in Accounting. In the Accounting major, you will learn to analyze financial information, provide solutions to complex problems through critical thinking, and communicate information and strategies in a way that helps all stakeholders make well-informed decisions. 

The online program provides a flexible schedule without sacrificing the opportunity to study at the AACSB accredited Dhaliwal-Reidy School of Accountancy. As an online student, you will have access to all the same resources as on-campus students, including personal career coaching and connection to a strong network of partner firms and companies. You will also be taught by and receive mentoring opportunities from the same esteemed faculty as the on-campus accounting degree program.

Upon graduation, you may choose to pursue careers in independent auditing, tax advice and tax return preparation, financial statement preparation, financial and management consulting or entrepreneurial services. Your accounting degree will translate to in-demand roles in the field, whether you want to pursue your Masters in Accounting, CPA license or go on to work as a financial analyst, accountant or CFO.

The Accounting major is a rigorous, four-year program that requires 21 accounting units and 30 professional core units.

This program leads to professional licensure. Licensure requirements vary by state. To see if our program meets, does not meet or if we are unable to make a determination on requirements, please review the program state licensure information via the Eligibility & State Authorization page.

Effective Summer 2023, students will no longer be admitted as pre-business students and will be admitted directly into Business Administration. Students will still need to complete the Professional Admissions milestone to begin their upper-division Business Administration courses. After completing the Professional Admissions milestone, accounting students can switch majors from Business Administration to Accounting.

*Residents of some U.S. Territories may not be eligible. Please see our Eligibility & State Authorization page for more information.
