B.S. in Accounting

Accounting is considered the language of business. More specifically, accounting is the analysis and recording of economic data, followed by the preparation of reports that can be used in an organization’s decision-making process. 

Saint Mary’s B.S. in Accounting program is designed to prepare students for careers in corporations, public accounting firms, government, and nonprofit organizations. The program develops the technical competencies, communication skills, and ethical frameworks that are valued by today’s employers.
