At Northwood, we understand the importance of developing strong accountants who can crunch numbers and also serve as valuable business advisors who know the ins and outs of a company's financials.
We will teach you all about profit maximization, cost-cutting initiatives, and financial analysis. You will quickly learn that by managing a company's financials, you are managing its future. Accounting is the language of business and we'll make sure you speak it fluently.
Northwood Accounting degree program students get a head start over students at most other colleges and universities because Northwood students begin Accounting courses during the first semester of study. Another major advantage of Northwood's Accounting program is the integration of management courses in the overall accountancy curriculum. The combination of the Accounting and Management curriculums are so closely integrated that the course of study culminates in a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.
