Why Accounting?

You enable effective decision making. You uphold the integrity of businesses. You safeguard investors.


Accounting is the right path for you if you're seeking a program to qualify you to act as a vital buffer to global markets.

As an accountant, you will serve as the primary liaison between business entities, their stakeholders, and a comprehensive information system. Your role will involve handling crucial financial data upon which critical decisions are made thus making your contributions the key to effective business decision-making.

Pursuing an accounting degree will also give you the chance to follow a career as an auditor, the active deterrent to managerial malfeasance. You will be the gatekeeper preserving the integrity of the business markets and upholding the principles of responsible governance.

But why should you pursue a degree in accounting today? Because in this period of complex transactions, increased public scrutiny, and global integration the business world has never been more in need of qualified, competent, and well-educated young accountants.

I contribute a great deal of credit for the success I have in my career because of the top-notch knowledge I gained from studying accounting in AUC’s School of Business. I am thankful to the professors for the level of commitment they had in preparing me for the workforce. I stay involved with AUC to this day as a graduate teaching assistant and I am proud to be part of the Accounting family.”

My experience at the accounting department was never restricted to being taught material from the books; it was more of a coaching and mentorship program that supported my personal development and career planning. I was lucky to encounter several mentors in the department whose main goal was to help each student figure out the best path that fits their competencies and aspirations. Thanks to the AUC’s accounting department staff who have exerted tremendous efforts to transform the Bachelor’s degree into a development experience rather than just a certificate.

Upon entering AUC’s Accounting program, I initially sought a bachelor's degree to advance my professional career. Luckily, I have come away with so much more than a “piece of paper” and it is all thanks to the support and encouragement that I found in every professor and staff member of AUC’s Accounting department. The program provided me with the skills and knowledge base that will help me excel in my career. I can look back now and say that my time in the accounting program at AUC was definitely a worthwhile investment.
