The numbers add up
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 United States. 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.
Why study Accounting at Malone?
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 majors 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.

View Course Curriculum
The accounting major curriculum consists of 66 required semester hours. Each course is listed in the official Academic Catalog.
Students who are majoring in another program may choose to take an Accounting minor in addition to their primary course of study. A minor normally consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours, 6 of which must be taken at the 300/400 level. Each academic school or department must approve the student and curriculum to be used in the completion of each minor for the Office of the Registrar to verify at the point of graduation.
