Accounting is often called the "language of business" because it deals with interpreting and communicating information about a company's past activities and forecasting future operations. Every decision maker, from the owner of a small start-up to the CEO of a global conglomerate, works with accounting information. This is a far stretch from the stereotype of back-room number crunching.
To prepare our students for careers in accounting, auditing, and other business related fields, Bradley offers both undergraduate and master’s degrees in accounting. Accounting is an extremely flexible major. Our students learn more than just the tax code and accounting principles. Today’s accountants are business advisors and information specialists. Their job is to explain a business to others. Because they understand a business so well, their broad training allows accountants to easily branch into diverse professions. While many accounting graduates begin their careers in public or corporate accounting positions, accounting also provides valuable skills for many other career paths, from attorney to banker to consultant to FBI agent.
