With the increasingly interdisciplinary model used by businesses, completion of the minor broadens career opportunities and increases the student’s marketability. With careful course selection, completion of the minor will accrue enough accounting credits for students from any major to apply for direct admission to the Master of Accounting program upon completion of the undergraduate degree.
