Accountants do more than just crunch numbers during tax season. They perform audits of their clients' financial statements; offer management consulting services; analyze customer profitability; develop budgets; and provide tax planning and preparation services. Earning a bachelor's degree in accounting is an important first step for anyone who is looking to pursue a career in this field.
At The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University, our Bachelor of Science in Accounting Degree program faculty believes in a one-on-one approach to teaching. Our classes are small; we get to know each one of our students; and we combine our extensive experience in the business world with the accounting degree curriculum. In fact, members of the Post University accounting faculty have worked as accountants, and bring public accounting, corporate income taxation, forensic accounting, accounting information systems, auditing, law enforcement and education expertise to the classroom.
A bachelor's degree in accounting from The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University will provide you with the tools and experience you need to succeed in traditional accounting jobs, or to begin a career path in any field of interest, including manufacturing, law enforcement, education, health care, government, sports, and entertainment, among others.
