Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business with an Emphasis in Accounting
On-Campus Business Degree Overview
The accounting emphasis available to students in the Bachelor of Science in Business degree was created to prepare individuals to work in the accounting function within corporations, nonprofits or other entities. Accurate accounting of business activity is essential to smooth transactions and for the reporting to oversight organizations.
Building upon a foundation of general business courses, the emphasis on accounting provides students at Regent University's Virginia campus an opportunity to expand their knowledge of accounting principles and processes used in business today.
