The Accounting degree at Colorado Christian University provides you with both breadth and depth of accounting knowledge, and prepares you to meet the increased demand for accounting expertise in all industries. While career opportunities for accounting graduates have always been stable – even during economic downturns – increasing scrutiny of corporate finances has fueled demand for those with competency in the field.
A major in accounting also provides you the mobility to pursue various business careers in the fields of management, finance, operations, and consulting because accounting provides essential knowledge about profits, costs, and cash flows – key metrics in every organization. With a working knowledge of accounting, you'll be better equipped to capitalize on emerging opportunities that provide new career directions such as moving from financial accounting to strategic financial analysis; from financial analysis to operations management; or from managing departments to consulting.
Accounting In the Christian University
A Christian framework for accounting, finance, and business is the structure that differentiates Colorado Christian University's accounting major from other accounting degrees. By fostering a Christian approach to business – rather than simply being a Christian in the business realm – you'll learn that the virtues specific to your Christian life can shape the everyday practices of the marketplace. Our desire is to teach you how to be salt and light in a secular business world. We also recognize our personal responsibility to design unique curriculum geared toward giving you both practical knowledge and hands-on experience that meet uniform CPA Exam requirements in the State of Colorado.
