About the Accounting Department

School of Business: Accounting Department

SONY DSCCell phones, entrepreneurship, globalization, virtual organizations—these are hallmarks of the workplace accounting graduates will enter after graduation.

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.

Academic Programs
