Bachelor of Business Administration: Accountancy

*Only Available at LU-Tulsa*

Accountancy introduces students to careers in public accounting and in business, governmental, and not-for-profit organizations. Success in accountancy careers depends on logical reasoning, superior communication skills, and mastery of accounting theory and sound business practice. Career progress in this field is related to one’s ability to identify, define and analyze the relationship between fiscal and operational accounts at increasing levels of oversight.

Upon completion of this degree, students will have knowledge and understanding of:

  • Recognizing, classifying and recording economic events and preparing financial statements and other accounting information in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP);
  • Providing financial information to users (internal and external) for decision-making through the use and production of financial statements;
  • Identifying business organization structures and the environment in which they operate;
  • Understanding the role of an accountant as an independent verifier of the financial statements; and an understanding tax and ethical issues in the business environment.
