Learn more about the program

  • “With accounting, it’s like teaching a language. You’re teaching the language of business… Accounting is kind of a dry subject. It’s exciting when you get to the real world and you are putting it to practical use.

    “In FINC 0200, we go from basic accounting to managerial accounting where we help managers with their decisions. In FINC 0300, a corporate finance course, we’re dealing with more advanced types of topics on how corporations finance their activities.”
