The Accounting major prepares students for the field of accounting and prepares students to sit for the CPA examination in most states, and to begin a career in public or corporate accounting.
It's In The Numbers
An understanding of accounting is central to managing any financial related enterprise, and those who aspire to a successful business career must be well-grounded in accounting principles. Accounting is a worthwhile and challenging area of study for students who are concerned with managerial decision making. Accounting is so much more than the mechanical manipulation of financial data to produce balance sheets and profit and loss statements.
Northwood Accounting students get a head start over students at most other colleges and universities because Northwood students begin Accounting courses during the first term 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.
