Accounting information, crucial for the functioning of the world's economy, depends on the expertise and integrity of the professional accountant. Accountancy is one of the most in demand professions in the US. Industry, public accounting firms, financial services, not-for-profits, small and large organizations all require accountants. This high demand will continue for the foreseeable future. Plan your courses for your Accounting major via the academic Catalog.
The ACBSP-accredited* Malone University accounting major provides you with a well-rounded understanding of the subject areas within accounting. We believe, and professional certification requirements insist, that the accountant also has a thorough understanding of business administration. Therefore nearly all of the business administration major required courses are included in the accounting major. All you need to do is take two business electives, and you will earn two majors; one in accounting and a second major in business administration.
*Malone University's School of Business and Leadership is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) for its undergraduate degrees in accounting, business administration, and sport management; its management degree completion programs; and, its master's degrees in business administration and organizational leadership.
ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business school at Malone University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.
