About the Program

The accountant’s role in business has changed dramatically over the past decade. Today, accountants are actively involved in the analysis and interpretation of financial data and work with other executives in decision-making and problem solving activities. Pursuing an accounting major at The University of Olivet will help you develop strong technical and professional accounting skills and prepare you for career success in public or corporate accounting, taxation, financial analysis, management and consulting.
