Bachelors in Accounting. Accounting is defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as "the art of recording, classifying, and summarizing in a significant manner and in terms of money, transactions and events which are, in part at least, of financial character, and interpreting the results thereof." Expectations of Accounting Graduates The undergraduate Accounting curriculum develops competence in a broad range of accounting skills and practices. The curriculum strives to foster critical thinking and problem solving skills. Accounting students are prepared to enter professional positions in accounting with business, nonprofit, or government organizations. In addition they may continue their education in the Master of Accountancy Program and/or pursue a variety of professional certifications. Careers in Accounting Because virtually all organizations produce and use financial data for decision making, the career possibilities for an accounting major are diverse. Many students launch careers at public accounting firms, seeking their Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license. Public accounting firms provide external audit, tax prep/research, consulting, and other financial services to their clients. The state of Montana requires 150 credit hours to qualify for the CPA license, so many students pursue a Masters in Accountancy or a double major to achieve this. Beyond public accounting, students may seek careers with for-profit companies, not-for-profit organizations, and governments. These organizations use internal accountants, internal auditors, financial analysts, IT risk managers, cost accountants, tax specialists, and controllers. Students may also seek careers in compliance, fraud, and forensics with organizations such as the IRS and FBI. Mission Statement: Accounting Studies The accounting programs prepare ethically aware decision makers with effective analytical and qualitative business knowledge and skills to become accounting professionals in the region and beyond. We commit to high quality teaching and applying scholarship to professional practice, pedagogy, and theory to enhance the field of professional accounting.
