To succeed, accounting graduates need to be flexible; understand, synthesize, and communicate information from a variety of areas; and know how to harness the power of working in teams. And that is exactly what students learn when they study accounting at Truman State University.
The undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the School of Business at Truman are accredited in both business and accounting by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. These programs include: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, and Master of Accountancy. Truman is one of fewer than 200 schools worldwide holding accreditation in both Business and Accounting.
AACSB is recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation and by the Office of Postsecondary Education, U.S. Department of Education, as a specialized accrediting agency for undergraduate and graduate programs in business administration and accounting.
