Accounting

Aim Higher with a Degree in Accounting at Northern Vermont University

Accounting is the language of business, but business isn’t the only field where accountants are in demand. Nonprofit organizations, schools and hospitals, government agencies, and grassroots enterprises all need accountants.

Today’s accountant focuses on auditing controls — both preventive controls (designed to prevent errors or irregularities from happening) and forensic controls (designed to find errors or irregularities after they occur). They are trouble-shooters and puzzle-solvers with a knack for numbers and an eye for details.

At Northern Vermont University, you'll work closely with faculty experts to build your own expertise in this growing field. Courses in mathematics, principles of marketing and economics, as well as different accounting fields, will prepare you to graduate with the skills that will make you stand out to prospective employers in this growth field.

Students with a B.S. in accounting will be able to demonstrate:

• The proper recording of financial transactions as required by GAAP and IFRS
• The utilization of accounting information for analysis and management decision-making
• The necessary knowledge to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam
