Program description

Accounting B.B.A.

Business fuels the engine of global commerce, and accounting is commonly called the “language of business.” To be a successful communicator in any field, one must speak the language of that discipline. Thousands of years ago, the language of accounting was simpler but nonetheless applicable in a primitive society that recorded the growth of crops and herds. Modern accounting methods may be more sophisticated, but mastery of the language common to all business disciplines remains imperative. At MTSU, students have the flexibility to tailor their accounting studies to help meet personal goals.
