Accounting

The School of Accounting offers students the chance to move beyond merely tracking income and assets. Graduates of our program engage in a wide variety of activities, including financial management, business transaction tracking, merger and acquisition strategy, information systems development, tax strategy and wealth management. Our excellent faculty prepares students to enter a constantly evolving field full of stimulating and challenging work.

Many accounting undergraduates pursue a Master of Accounting (MAcc). In Utah, a master’s degree qualifies students to prepare for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.
