The broad objective of the accounting curriculum is to give the student a significant insight into all financial information - how it is generated, how it is processed, and what it means. A major in accounting is also worthy of consideration by those students who plan to attend law school or other graduate programs. Students who majored in accounting have found that their preparation was helpful not only for their graduate programs, but also for their subsequent professional careers. Employers continually emphasize the value of graduates who understand both business and the information system (IS) that supports it. While IS professionals develop competence in the design and implementation of business information systems, accountants have a broad understanding of the business process and controls, and how the systems are used to generate information for decision making. Having the two skill sets is invaluable. Students fulfilling this concentration will satisfy all of the requirements for the IS concentration and also obtain a background in Accounting. The curriculum entails six courses (five required and one Accounting elective), and is designed for students interested in careers either with the consulting divisions of professional service firms, such as major accounting firms, IS departments of companies, or as IS auditors. Students are advised to see a faculty advisor in selecting an appropriate Accounting elective. This concentration is administered jointly by the Accounting Department and the Information Systems Department.
