Accounting

Accountants help make sense out of dollars. They prepare and interpret financial information that companies will use for strategic planning. And they carry out their responsibilities according to the highest standards of integrity.

With Krannert’s Accounting degree, you can pursue a career in accounting or stay for a Master of Science Degree in Accounting, to be eligible to sit for the CPA exam. You’ll have the opportunity to work in corporations, public accounting firms, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. In addition to your accounting classes, you’ll have class work in other areas, including finance, marketing, and human resource management, which will give you an overall understanding of the business world.
