Description from the School

The online Bachelor of Arts in Business with a concentration in Corporate Accounting is structured to prepare students for careers in management accounting. Career opportunities in this field are generally substantive and in high demand.

The online BA in Business with a concentration in Corporate Accounting, offered through W. P. Carey School of Business, provides students an avenue to extend their careers' from the more traditional perspective of "crunching numbers" for someone else to analyzing potential decisions and courses of action from a financial perspective.

Instead of answering, "How much would it cost to expand our business into California?" the question would be, "Financially, does it make sense to expand our business into California?" This latter question is much more a manager, leader oriented question compared to the traditional "How much does it cost" type question and typically requires management accountants to function within a team of experts (e.g. with marketing, regulatory, production team members, etc.) Clearly, the opportunities for management accountants acting more as managers and leaders within an organization are increasing exponentially, with both salaries and opportunities rising above other career options.
