Program overview

Accounting is the process of identifying, recording and analyzing information necessary to evaluate the past, present and future economic activities of organizations. Accounting is often said to be the language of business. Oakland University’s School of Business Administration is one of only five schools in Michigan to hold elite AACSB-International accreditation in both its business and accounting programs. The Accounting major will prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry and government. Accounting professionals are individuals capable of doing more than maintaining sets of accounting records as they focus on analyzing and measuring business activity, processing that data into reports and communicating the information to decision makers. Accountants apply their skills in areas such as auditing, cost management, financial analysis, information systems, management, policy and taxation. Accounting is often the pathway to top management of a corporation.
