To be successful in the field of accounting, you must not only have a full understanding of accounting principles and the skills to put them into practice but, you also must be an expert in the sub-disciplines within accounting.
That’s why our program is focused on preparing you for a career that requires significant exposure to — and a firm grasp of — these sub-disciplines:
Forensic concentration: Demand for programs in forensic accounting has risen due to the increase in regulations in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. You will learn about investigative accounting, valuation theory and practice, fraud examination, and more.
Taxation concentration: The taxation concentration will enable you to advise clients regarding the tax law. This track concentrates on federal income taxation as it relates to corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.
