Overview

Accounting students at Davenport University find jobs not only in accounting firms, but in industry businesses and government. In addition, we offer a suite of accounting programs to include a Masters in Accountancy and a BBA in Accounting Fraud Investigation, further signaling our strength in accounting education. Students are also able to participate in our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This program serves over 6,400 taxpayers around the tri-county area, yielding over $8 million in refunds. Assisting in the VITA program adds valuable experience to a student's portfolio while helping fellow citizens with much needed tax assistance.

Learning outcomes

Entry level to mid-level accounting positions are available for graduates. Accounting employment availability is expected to rise at least 11% from 2014-2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Increasing tax and regulatory complexities and an overall growing economy are expected to provide a strong demand for accountants in all areas of business. In addition to accounting positions, many companies will hire accounting graduates and train them for finance, opening up even more opportunities.
