Bachelor of Arts in Accounting

Accounting is both a primary communication channel between business entities and its stakeholders, as well as a comprehensive information system that supports effective decision making. The role of the accounting profession is to become more pronounced in today’s business environment, which is characterized by scarce resources, fierce rivalry, complex transactions and increased public scrutiny. Furthermore, auditors are considered the key deterrent to managerial malfeasance, a phenomenon that adversely affects markets and investors’ confidence.

“Studying accounting at the AUC School of Business was the best decision I ever made. It gave me the opportunity to get an education from the highest caliber of professors. The hardest classes were the best, because they taught me how to solve complex problems in my career. Coupled with AUC’s liberal arts education, accounting enables students to cope with the real world. I am forever grateful for all my accounting professors.” — Marwan Kabbani '08
