Minor in Accounting

The minor in accounting provides non-business students with a thorough grounding in financial and management accounting and an introduction to one more advanced area of accounting. This minor will be especially appropriate for students who will use accounting knowledge extensively in their work following graduation and for those interested in preparing for a professional accounting career. In particular, a non-business student who earns an undergraduate accounting minor and follows this up with Kogod's Master of Science in Accounting or Master of Science in Taxation will be well prepared for the Uniform CPA Exam and will meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in most states. If you are pursuing the CPA, please review the requirements closely on the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy website.
