Bachelor's in Accounting

Accounting is best defined as the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. Students who select accounting as their major generally show a talent for analyzing financial information, developing financial and investment planning strategies, verifying financial documents, and managing costs and assets. All organizations need these skills to ensure proper financial management.

The accounting program at AIU is designed to prepare students for professional careers in public, corporate, or governmental accounting. While stressing fundamental accounting theory, the curriculum provides a thorough application of these concepts to practical situations.
