BBA – Accounting

The accounting profession is growing and changing — and Southwestern’s accounting department can help you develop skills that are critical to success in accounting. Among the most important skills you will learn is how to critically and strategically evaluate each issue you confront. Your education will not be text-book driven. You will be challenged to express and support your opinions. You will learn how to research and analyze business solutions, helping you to develop problem solving and decision-making skills.


Numerous career choices are available to accounting graduates, including working in not-for-profit accounting (for the Seventh-day Adventist denomination or other not-for-profit entities), public accounting, industry (ranging from small businesses to large corporations), and governmental accounting.
