Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting - Online

Tiffin University’s Accounting major places an emphasis on flexibility and versatility.  Students are taught the skills that will enable them 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.
