Bachelor of Science in Accounting

Accounting is a dynamic profession that is essential to organizations around the globe. Corporate governance, organizational strategy and long-term planning all require the technical and analytic skills of accountants. The BS in accounting provides a broad-based education that balances conceptual and pragmatic knowledge.

Careers in Accounting

In virtually every organization — private, public, nonprofit, governmental — accounting professionals hold critical roles at all levels. A degree in this field also prepares students to pursue advanced degrees in business, law and other fields.

Licensed counselors provide students strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and connecting with campus recruiters, among other services. Naveen Jindal School of Management students are encouraged to hold internships. The school’s fully staffed Career Management Center, working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as post-graduation employment.

Accounting at UT Dallas

A 120-hour curriculum leads to a degree in accounting. All undergraduate degrees require a core of 42 hours. In the core courses, students have an opportunity to learn theories and analytical techniques that can be applied to the functional areas of business, such as finance and marketing. Students are exposed to the international dimensions of business activities and to social and political factors that impact business behavior. Students who plan to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) should consider the 150-hour Professional Program in Accounting, which earns them both an undergraduate and a master’s degree.

A capstone course in strategic management allows students to solve real-world business problems. Students are also required to take courses outside the Naveen Jindal School of Management in order to broaden their educational experience in preparation for leadership roles as professionals and/or managers in modern business organizations.
