ACCOUNTING (ACC)

Professor Goldsmith, Chair


The Accounting program has three primary objectives. First, the program seeks to provide students majoring in Business Administration with the necessary accounting background for making effective managerial decisions. Second, the program seeks to provide accounting majors with the skills and knowledge necessary for success in the accounting profession. Third, as a component of a Christian liberal arts college, the accounting program emphasizes the importance of Christian values and ethics in the practice of accounting.
