The accounting degree program at Nazareth College prepares students to have the versatility and critical thinking skills that are invaluable in today's global economy. With the growth of international business, accounting expertise and services have become more sophisticated.
Accountants are called upon to play wide-ranging roles in international trade, mergers and acquisitions, business development, and economic forecasting. But whether they are doing general ledger bookkeeping or complex corporate auditing, at Nazareth, all accountants are problem-solvers.
Nazareth students learn the financial side of business and gain the social and analytical skills to identify and solve problems in a professional and ethical manner. Collaboration is highly stressed and all final projects are team-based. Accounting majors also solve problems within the context of economics, finance, management, marketing, ethics, technology and global issues.

"Nazareth gives you the ability to think broadly, digest different types of information that are not core to what you do every day, and adjust—and that's what is really important in business today."
