Bachelor of Business Administration with a Concentration in Accountancy

The bachelor of business administration (BBA) with a concentration in accountancy degree program provides undergraduate students with the analytical tools and conceptual framework needed to understand and record financial transactions.

The School of Business offers two degree options for students to study accountancy: the BBA with a concentration in accountancy and the bachelor of accountancy (BAccy). The BBA degree with an accountancy concentration is intended to be paired with a second, complementary field of concentration. For students who plan to work as an accountant, often with a CPA designation, the BAccy degree program is more appropriate as it offers substantially more preparation in accounting. 

Accountancy is an ideal second concentration for BBA students who plan to pursue careers in finance as it provides a strong background in information that underlies many financial decisions. Likewise, a second concentration in accountancy is an excellent choice for BBA students with a concentration in information systems as such students often pursue jobs related to accounting information systems.

In addition to the requirements for the bachelor of business administration the concentration in accountancy requires five field courses and one international field course:
