Overview

The BBA accounting curriculum is designed to prepare the student for a career as a professional accountant. Students are encouraged to declare their intention to major in accounting as early as possible after enrolling at DBU. A full-time accounting professor will counsel with each declaring student individually to develop a semester-by-semester degree plan to assure proper sequence of courses. Students may not continue as accounting majors unless they maintain a Grade Point Average of 3.0 in their upper-level accounting courses.

The purpose of the Accounting Program of Dallas Baptist University is to provide a Christ-centered, high quality, accounting education by focusing on faith-integration, excellence in classroom instruction, and competence-building activities in order to produce servant leaders. 

The BBA accounting major prepares students for careers as professional accountants in business. In addition to the eleven common-core courses required of all BBA degree programs, which include 6 hours of principles level accounting courses, accounting majors complete nine required upper-level accounting courses and one upper level business elective.
