Accounting

The Bachelor of Science in Accounting program is designed to prepare ethical leaders for the accounting profession. The accounting curriculum prepares students for a career in public, corporate and governmental accounting. Students learn the basic definitions, concepts and techniques of accounting, as well as the role accounting plays in society. At least 80 percent of our graduates will be able to start graduate studies or careers in accounting at entry-level professional positions.

Students majoring in accounting will be able to:

  • Prepare and analyze financial statements
  • Identify relevant authoritative guidance to apply appropriate professional judgments
  • Integrate financial accounting reporting with managerial accounting methods to produce data for use in real-world business decisions
  • Explain, apply and evaluate relevant topics related to federal income tax
  • Explain and apply an ethical conceptual framework to address real-world ethical problems

The LMU Department of Accounting houses the Center for Accounting Ethics, Governance, and the Public Interest and the Paul A. Grosch Lecture Series, both which bring prominent executives and local business leaders to the LMU campus to recount their experiences and share their knowledge on some of the biggest issues in accounting, ethics and global business today.
