Accounting is the process of recording and summarizing business and financial transactions and analyzing, verifying and reporting the results. It is the language of business.

The Facts

An accounting degree is one of the most versatile degrees available—every business and non-profit organization needs accountants or accounting support. You’ll study financial accounting, auditing, tax and cost accounting, as well as courses from other business disciplines. Graduates often pursue a graduate degree or certified public accountant (CPA) designation. 

As an accountant, you primarily offer two qualities to those who hire you—your competence and your integrity. At MNU, you’ll gain a new understanding of these important professional qualities and learn how to apply them in a variety of business settings.

Competence: Our accounting students regularly score above the mean on a standardized national business exam. Integrity: Our professors integrate faith directly into your classroom experience, helping you build the character you’ll need to face the challenges of today’s business world.

As a senior you can gain practical experience by spending a semester interning in a finance-related role with an outside company. This is where MNU’s location offers you a huge advantage—several national accounting firms and Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in Kansas City.

People

“I enjoy working with students to relate complex problems to underlying principles. It’s fun to help them connect what they’re learning to the real world.”

Lynne Erickson, M.A.S., CPA
Assistant professor.
 

Many students choose to pursue a CPA designation.  Since eligibility requirements to take the CPA exam vary from state to state, our faculty—many with CPA designations themselves—work with you to chart the best academic path toward achieving this goal.
