Leading To Versatility
Tiffin Universityís Accounting Major places an emphasis on flexibility and versatility. You are taught the skills that will enable you to pursue not only short-term, entry-level positions, but also long-term career paths that are often beyond the field of accounting.
The program is designed to encourage analytical thinking and decision-making. As a graduate, you will have the ability to articulate solutions to business problems (predicting cash flows about economic resources, claims to economic resources, and changes in economic resources of an organization). This emphasis on developing student resourcefulness positions our graduates for long-term career success.
This is an education for life!
Tiffin University follows a fairly traditional accounting curriculum with several distinct advantages. Our accounting classes not only stress practical applications, but also include both tax research and problem solving. In addition, management courses are integrated into the curriculum during the entire four years, stressing real-world applications. Accounting students will participate in an internship during their Junior or Senior year. These internships often lead to permanent full-time employment.
