Accounting is the theory and practice of organizing, maintaining, and auditing the financial records of an organization or an individual. There are three main types of accountants: management accountants, who handle records of the companies they work for; public accountants, who work for or own independent accounting firms; and not-for-profit accountants, who work for governmental agencies and some health care organizations. Full or part-time internships are available to qualified students. The department offers a graduate-level professional accountancy course of study within the M.B.A. program. Most graduates go directly into the field in the areas of public, corporate, or not-for-profit accounting.
