As students assume roles of supervisors, managers, and above in their future, many of the metrics by which they will be judged are driven by the accounting function. A good understanding of the determining factors behind the numbers generating those metrics will allow the manager to see behind the numbers and make good business decisions.
The accounting minor is geared to provide this understanding as well as a good working knowledge of increasingly complex tax laws. Additionally, a non-accounting major who may decide to pursue a CPA in the future will have a solid foundation for that transition.
A minor in Accounting requires six courses - five required and one accounting elective.
