The Accounting and Information Systems Department offers students the opportunity both to develop practical skills and acquire general knowledge of two key business areas: Accounting and technology- based Information Systems. The accounting major provides students with the theories and procedures necessary to prepare them for the many facets of the accounting profession, such as public, industrial, managerial, tax and government accounting.
The College of Business is accredited by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the premier accrediting agency for business programs worldwide. In addition, we are one of fewer than 175 programs worldwide to have separate accounting accreditation from the AACSB. Accounting is the only discipline within business for which separate accreditation is given; as such, the other business programs are not separately accredited. We work very hard to maintain the quality and continuous improvement expected from programs that have achieved AACSB accreditation.
All students are required to earn a grade of C or better in the individual prerequisites for each upper-division course to advance to the next upper-division accounting course. Upper-division accounting courses may be taken a maximum of three (3) times. A minimum of 12 of the required 18 upper-division accounting units must be completed at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Transfer courses are not included in the calculation of major GPA (2.0 is required for graduation).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
