Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting

The Accountancy program at Delta State is fully accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs. The curriculum is reviewed periodically by a group of accounting practitioners to ensure that our graduates are kept up to date on the latest accounting trends and techniques.

Program of Study

A BBA degree in accounting requires a total of 128 semester hours. The degree requires 27 hours of accounting courses and 9 hours of Computer Information Systems courses which build upon 44 hours of general education and 33 hours of business courses.

Upon completion of the accounting degree, graduates are eligible to sit for the internationally recognized Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examinations. Both examinations are designed to be entry-level exams into the management accounting and the internal auditing professions. Many graduates of DSU's undergraduate program elect to continue their accounting education, enter a graduate program to obtain a master's degree, and pursue the professional designation Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

A student enters the integrated professional program at the end of the junior year and may earn both the BBA and MBA degrees in a streamlined program. Two graduate courses may be taken in the senior year to apply toward the Master's degree.

Accounting & CIS (double major)

Computer and technology skills have become more important to accountants. Accordingly, the DSU curriculum reflects an increased emphasis on computers and information systems. A student may major in Accountancy and Computer Information Systems (a double major) with careful planning. Graduates with this double major are very marketable in the workforce
