Four-Year Degree

Overview

Accounting is the language of business; it prepares students for any opportunity like starting your own business. If you are interested in business, you should consider the diversity and flexibility accounting has over other degrees.

Key Benefits

Our students work frequently with case studies and serve internships with various companies and organizations. The faculty includes practicing professionals with MBAs, Ph.D.s, and CPAs. Small class sizes allow more personal attention from faculty, and foster collaborative projects with other students.

Students completing the accounting bachelors degree will be eligible to apply either for the 30-credit hour Master of Accountancy program or the Accelerated MBA Program at Westminster College. Students wishing to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination in Utah and many other states should choose to take the Master of Accountancy, or complete the Accounting Certificate as part of the MBA degree.

Accreditation Employers Trust

The Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business is nationally accredited by the Association of College Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
