You’re good with numbers and you want to use that strength to help businesses and other organizations successfully manage finances and taxes.
The accounting program at Tennessee Wesleyan provides the opportunity for students to understand and apply financial and tax concepts as they relate to a business enterprise. Businesses rely on accounting information to understand and successfully manage the operation of the entity.
The study of accounting will enable the student to understand financial reporting, tax issues and accounting systems. The accounting concentration assists the student in understanding the professional rules, regulation and the application of these items in the business environment. The skills learned may be used in CPA firms or the corporate accounting and management environments.
Accounting professionals are in high demand and needed at every organization. Students with a degree in accounting can be seen in careers like:
Managerial or Financial Accountant
Certified Public Accountant
Chief Financial Officer
Degrees within the Goodfriend School of Business, including the accounting concentration, provide numerous opportunities to connect with seasoned business professionals, both faculty members and business partners who take a direct interest in the development of our students.
Students also have the opportunity to develop other business skills through minors in Business or Entrepreneurship, as well as a pre-MBA minor, preparing students to get the Master’s in Business Administration.
