Business Administration- Accounting

Accounting, often called the language of business, teaches the principles and methods by which organizations maintain their record-keeping systems. Additionally, this business-rooted area of study explores the cause and effect relationship that various financial events have on every part of that organization; and how accounting information impacts the day-to-day management decisions of every business.

Students who shine in the classroom at KU have vital internship opportunities that provide real-world experience in the accounting profession.
