Accounting, the Language of Business

Industry, government, education and not-for-profit organizations are seeking accounting professionals to help make financial decisions.

Join a growing profession that is integral to the global flow of commodities, goods and services. Learn how to analyze income statements and how to manage assets, liabilities and debts. Learn the science of short-term and long-term expense management. 

Our accredited bachelor of science degree in accounting prepares graduates for the workplace.

To be successful, we suggest a minimum ACT of 24 and a high school ranking in the top 15 percent.

Pursuing an Accounting Degree at SCSU Just Got More Affordable

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education recognizes accounting and auditing to be two of the highest-need career areas in business. Starting Fall 2022, the state’s new Future Together Grants will be awarded to students earning a two-year or four-year degree in a high need career area from a Tribal College or public institution (like SCSU!).

The cost of attendance at SCSU is already an incredible value, but with the new Minnesota Future Together Grants, pursuing a degree like accounting, at SCSU, is now even more affordable!
