About

You'll apply what you learn in class to the real world of business through on-campus workshops, civic events in the community and team-based projects.

Besides the hours of real-world experience you'll be adding to your résumé, you'll earn your bachelor's degree in only three years with no weekend, summer or evening courses required and still have plenty of time to participate in athletics and campus life. While others are still taking classes toward their degree, you can use your “fourth year” to pursue graduate studies or to start your career ahead of your peers.

The Accounting / Finance - Degree in Three Years program, offered by the Southern New Hampshire University, makes sense financially as well. You'll save a full year in tuition and room and board (over $40,000), and there's the potential to be earning a full year's salary after graduation while your peers are still in school.

In this accelerated BS program, you'll study the complexities of economic activity and the demands that all firms face in focusing on the bottom-line, financial perspective. Unlike many traditional programs, you choose the course of study that interests you. You can focus on optimizing a business' financial assets or concentrate on coursework to assist you in attaining a CPA.

If you're interested in accounting, you'll receive a solid foundation in accounting principles and practices. The three-year accounting and finance BS prepares you for a career in public and corporate accounting, taxation, banking, financial analysis, auditing, government services with the IRS or FBI, or scores of other accounting-related careers. Students pursuing a finance career learn the skills necessary to assess the performance and suitability of a firm's financial position as well as its stocks, bonds and other investments.

Internship & Outcomes

SNHU's accounting and finance major will prepare you to pursue a variety of finance- and accounting-related careers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in accounting and auditing is expected to grow 13 percent by 2022.

An undergraduate degree in accounting and finance will prepare you for careers in banking and corporate finance, the treasury or as a financial analyst. In addition to positions in public accounting and private industry, you can also pursue roles in government agencies, hospitals, social service agencies, education systems and in the international arena.
