Minor in Accounting

The School of Accountancy aspires to be a nationally recognized leader in influencing the accounting profession by educating our students, performing relevant research, and engaging with the profession.

Accounting provides the tools to measure, interpret, and communicate economic information for decision-making. A basic understanding of financial and managerial accounting information is necessary for all business majors. The Accounting Minor expands their knowledge of accounting. A student’s technical, communication, computer, critical-thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership skills are strengthened through accounting coursework. 

Students completing an Accounting Minor must earn grades of “B” or higher in ACCT 2101 and ACCT 2102 (ACCT 2101 is a prerequisite for ACCT 2102), and grades of “C” or higher in all other accounting courses.
