Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting

Accounting

It's all about the Benjamins, right? As an accountant, you make sure those Benjamins get to the people, programs, and agencies they are supposed to. You may be responsible for accounts ranging from a few thousand to millions of dollars. If you work as an accountant for a large corporation, the job often involves frequent travel across the nation, or even the world in the case of multinational corporations. Often, you'll work as part of a close-knit team without a lot of interruptions from a supervisor. This independence is a great perk to being an accountant, but if you want to take that independence a step further, then you should definitely add DSU's Professional Accountancy option!
