The bachelor’s degree in accounting is a rigorous yet engaging curriculum led by Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) with both public and private sector experience who stay up-to-date on the latest policies and regulations. For those who love numbers, this is a welcome challenge. Indiana Tech’s accounting program will refine your problem-solving skills and develop your understanding of the ethical and professional standards of modern accounting.

Graduates also have the opportunity to pursue an Indiana Tech MBA with an accounting concentration, which will prepare them to sit for the CPA exam. Qualified students may get a head start on the MBA through our 4+1 MBA program.
