Accountants are in high demand. Do you want to be part of a profession that is essential in every business and non-profit? Do you want to choose a major that will make you competitive in the job market? Do you want to see the world with a sound view of the human person and to have a strong ethical grounding for your actions?
The accounting major will offer you many professional opportunities. Accounting majors become Certified Public Accountants (CPA); work for a private firm (large or small) and perhaps becoming their Chief Financial Officer. Every for profit and nonprofit organization needs accountants. The accounting major will give you a strong background should you decide to go on to graduate school to earn a Master of Business Administration, Master of Public accountancy, or even a Doctorate.
At Ave Maria, you will round out your education with rigorous study in the humanities and the sciences, standing on the shoulders of giants and learning the best that has been thought and said. And you will have every encouragement to grow in your faith and to develop your sense of integrity, honor, and virtue, both in your classes and through business internships, mentoring and career guidance.
