Accounting

An accountant is so much more than a bean counter. Accountants reside at the intersection of art and science, analyzing and reporting financial status to foster success in all types of organizations.

When you study accounting, you hone your eye for meaningful detail and develop the business insight, management skills and solid ethics vital in a global marketplace.

As part of St. Norbert's accounting program, you earn a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in accounting. You also may take added courses to qualify for the Certified Public Accountant exam.

An Accounting Degree at Work
In a competitive job market, demand for accountants continues to grow. That’s because a good accountant’s analytical thinking, ethical decision making, and grasp on complex financial information can change the course of business.

With these skills, you can make a difference in any sector, from corporate to nonprofit to education to small business.

An accounting major’s career options include:
  • Investment banking
  • International accounting
  • Internal auditing
  • Tax planning
  • Certified Public Accounting
  • Government accounting
  • Nonprofit administration
  • Management accounting
  • Budget analysis
  • Environmental accounting
  • Financial planning
Leverage Your Accounting Degree
As a St. Norbert accounting major, you have access to for-credit internships and independent study – opportunities to make yourself more attractive to future employers.

You are also encouraged to study abroad. Relationships with programs in Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America provide international experience you can leverage in any work setting.
