Study Abroad

Career opportunities in accounting are boundless—from corporate to nonprofit to education to small business—and our accounting program prepares you for success no matter what professional path you decide to pursue.

Truman’s School of Business and accounting program are accredited by AACSB International, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the gold standard of business school accreditation worldwide.

With the flexibility of our accounting program, you can explore courses in our Business Administration program with areas of concentration in Finance, International Business, Management, and Marketing. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, many students decide to continue their education and apply for Truman’s Master of Accountancy program to meet the educational requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.
