Bachelor of Science in Professional Accountancy

It's all about the Benjamins, right? As an accountant, you make sure those Benjamins get to the people, programs, and agencies they are supposed to. You may be responsible for accounts ranging from a few thousand to millions of dollars. If you work as an accountant for a large corporation, the job often involves frequent travel across the nation, or even the world in the case of multinational corporations. Often, you'll work as part of a close-knit team without a lot of interruptions from a supervisor. This independence is a great perk to being an accountant, but if you want to take that independence a step further, then you should definitely add DSU's Professional Accountancy option!

The Professional Accountancy track prepares you to become a Certified Public Accountant, so you can even work as your own boss, set your own hours, and manage your own business. Hey, nobody ever breathes down your neck when you are the boss.

But either way you go, with an industry average salary of 60 large, you'll be glad you know how to manage money with all those Benjamins crowding your pockets, glove box, and sock drawer.
