Accounting provides the critical information that guides decision-making at all levels of business. Designed to provide basic conceptual accounting and business knowledge for careers in accounting and taxation, LeBow’s accounting coursework integrates accounting, auditing, tax preparation and related topics.
Accounting graduates may find career opportunities in public, private and government accounting. Professional accountants are normally certified as public accountants (CPA) or managerial accountants (CMA) after passing professional examinations. LeBow’s accounting concentration meets the education requirements needed in most states to sit for these exams.
