Accounting has been called "the language of business." In fact, it is much more. Managers of nearly all organizations, whether business, nonprofit or governmental, require accounting information to operate successfully. Financial statements prepared by accountants are used by individuals outside of these organizations to evaluate the performance of management and to make investing, lending, regulatory and other decisions. Accounting majors are well-versed in the preparation, use and limitations of accounting information, and understand business at a very fundamental level. Moreover, they offer knowledge and skills that most organizations require.
A major objective of the BBA program is to provide basic conceptual accounting and business knowledge as a foundation for accounting and business career development. Candidates for the Uniform CPA Examination in Texas must fulfill additional educational requirements. The Master of Accountancy (MAc) degree offered by the Neeley School meets those requirements and is designed for students planning careers in public accounting or other professional accounting careers.
