Course DescriptionThe mission of the Department of Accountancy is to prepare undergraduate and graduate students for careers in professional accounting and for licensure as Certified Public Accountants. This preparation is to be realized through a broad-based, liberal arts education consistent with the values characteristic of Jesuit higher education and congruent with the missions of the University and the Boler School of Business to develop the student as a total person. The Department of Accountancy further seeks to develop and provide quality service courses for other undergraduate and graduate areas of study within the University and to provide quality service to other internal and external constituencies.
Accounting, “the language of business,” is fundamental to successful management as well as the basis for maintaining credible stewardship of any sizable organization. Accountancy majors are exposed to aspects of international accounting and the application of professional ethics throughout the curriculum.
While the orientation is to instill technical competence and develop analytical skills in accounting, the department is aware that its majors must have a firm background in the liberal arts, sciences, business administration, and communications.
