Overview

In today’s ever-expanding world of international commerce, it pays to be fluent in the language of business. Indeed, accounting is defined as “the language of business.” Today’s accounting professionals are in great demand, and new and exciting niches, including fraud examination/forensic accounting and accounting information systems, are developing within the profession. In short, there has never been a better – or more exciting – time to consider a career in accounting.

The Accounting Department at The University of Scranton strives for continuous improvement so that the program responds to the changing needs and demands of the global business world. Program options include a four-year accounting degree, a five-year combined Bachelor of Science/Master of Business Administration degree, a minor in accounting and a minor in accounting information systems. Within the four-year program and the combined BS/BA program, students may opt to complete either the General Accounting track, the Forensic Accounting track or the Accounting Information Systems track.

The success of the University’s accounting graduates is demonstrated by their job placements. Alumni are employed by Big Four, regional and local public accounting firms and by many notable firms in private industry, as well as by governmental and not-for-profit organizations. Qualified students have opportunities for on-the-job training through internships.
