Accounting involves measuring the outcome of business activities and communicating this information to help investors, creditors, and others to make decisions.

Elon’s program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Accounting includes the central topics of financial and managerial accounting as well as an introduction to taxation, auditing, and accounting information systems. The accounting program prepares the graduate to be a professional accountant in business, government, nonprofit and other types of organizations.

This degree can also serve as a basis for graduate study in accounting and other fields, including business administration and law.

Students wishing to obtain certification as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) must meet the education requirements of the state issuing the certification. Most states require 150 hours of college credit; however, the content of the 150 hours may vary by state. Elon’s accounting curriculum is designed to help students earn 150 hours of college credit in four years. Through careful planning, it is possible to meet the education requirements for the State of North Carolina.

At least 50% of the accounting credit hours required for the Bachelor of Science degree must be earned at Elon.
