The Accounting program at Idaho State University includes an experiential component in our program so that our students have the opportunity to learn through applying the concepts studied in the classroom.

The learning goals of our BBA accounting program relate accounting content to both business and personal skill areas. 

Our content area goals are to have our graduates:

  • Understand financial accounting concepts at the intermediate accounting level;
  • Correctly apply procedures used in the taxation of entities;
  • Understand and apply managerial and cost accounting concepts; and
  • Understand the context and processes of auditing and assurance services.

Career Considerations

Following a national trend, Idaho law requires that a candidate for Certified Public Accountant (CPA) must have a college degree and at least 150 credit hours. While many accounting positions can be filled by individuals with a bachelor’s degree without a CPA certificate, graduates intending to progress in a professional career in either managerial or public accounting will benefit greatly from the additional breadth and depth offered by a graduate degree. 

The Idaho State University accounting program meets Idaho’s legal requirements and provides the additional knowledge and skills demanded by a rapidly changing business environment with a B.B.A. in Accounting, an M.B.A. with Emphasis in Accounting, a Master of Accountancy (MAcc) and a Master of Taxation (MTax).
