    Wide-ranging liberal arts experience

    Accounting is not just about numbers. Accounting is about planning for the future. It’s about understanding how cultural, environmental, and professional pressures impact businesses and organizations. And it’s about getting the most out of what you’ve been given in order to further your business or organization’s mission.

    Accounting is an indispensable tool of modern business. Accountants develop budgets, probe costs, measure performance, prepare financial statements, and help the businesses and organizations they work for develop plans for future growth. They are thinkers and innovators, not just people who manage the books, and a good accountant is key to the success of any organization, business, or corporation.

    The world needs good accountants—honest, hardworking, and creative men and women who can help the smallest non-profits and the biggest corporations do what they do better. The world also needs accountants who understand the difference between right and wrong, who want to serve the culture, not harm the culture, and who place truth before profit. The world needs the type of accountants Franciscan University sends forth.

    Do you want to be one of those accountants?

    If the answer to that question is yes, as an accounting major at Franciscan University you will study under professors who are not only excellent teachers—schooled in the practice of accounting, as well as the theory of economics, finance, and management—but also seasoned professionals in the world of business. Your professors bring real world experience to the classrooms—experience that grounds theory in the practical realities of business and provides you with a thorough understanding of the challenges you’ll face in your future career.
