Your Future in Accounting

The Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting at Charleston Southern University is for learners who want to engage in a wide variety of activities to advise a company regarding increasing its profitability. This goes beyond the bookkeeping basics of recording business transactions and preparing financial statements. Accountants develop skills in auditing, tax return preparation, accounting systems, forensic accounting, as well as, establishing and monitoring internal controls to increase efficiency and effectiveness within the firm. The accountant is the first line of defense against unethical corporate behavior.

CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and has specialized accreditation for its Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration degrees through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE).
