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.

About the Program

An accounting degree is one of the most versatile degrees available—every business and non-profit organization needs accountants or accounting support. 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.


Accounting students study:

  • financial accounting
  • auditing
  • tax and cost accounting

Graduates often pursue a graduate degree or certified public accountant (CPA) designation.


Our accounting students regularly score above the mean on a standardized national business exam.

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.
