Gain Practical Experience Solving Complex Challenges Through Financial Analysis and Accounting Principles
  • The Accounting, BSBA program at UCF prepares you with the various knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s complex financial world. Throughout your coursework, you’ll gain hands-on experience in calculating and interpreting financial performance, articulating the various aspects of a financial statement, as well as assessing the integrity of financial information. This comprehensive curriculum offers insight into the different tasks and challenges you may experience in the profession.
  • During your studies, you’ll be required to complete at least one internship which provides you with an opportunity to take what you’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to real-world settings. Upon graduation, gain employment in many different areas of business such as banking, financial planning, sales, production management, client management, product development, procurement and general management. Accounting graduates can also continue their education by applying for the Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program and become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

Please note that while licensure or certification may be available in this field of study, the Accounting, BSBA program does not lead to such licensure or certification upon graduation. However, the professional preparation you receive in this program may still assist you in such pursuits. Additionally, the accounting degree is not eligible for a double degree with another College of Business Administration major.
