Overview

The Accounting program offered by Saint Mary's College blends valuable classroom instruction from faculty who bring extensive real-world business experience with an abundance of opportunities to apply what you learn in real, meaningful ways. During the annual managerial accounting field trip, you’ll be able to meet and form connections with accountants at top firms in Chicago and Indianapolis. 

The program curriculum covers all aspects of accounting as well as aspects of management, marketing, macroeconomics, microeconomics, finance, statistical applications, business law, ethics, and other areas. In your senior year you’ll take the BBA comprehensive examination, which is formatted as a case study in which you’ll be part of a team that prepares a case report, gives an oral presentation, and addresses panelists’ questions about your work. This experience will test your technical competencies as well as your communication, analytical, quantitative, and problem-solving skills.
