Accounting (BBA)

Viterbo’s accounting program has an excellent reputation for developing students’ technical and leadership skills in this exciting and ever-changing profession. Often described as the language of business, accounting is a lucrative field that is in high demand in the business world. Students will learn to keep pace with the latest trends in technology, increased government regulation, tax law changes, the globalization of business, and the ongoing restructuring of corporations.

Accounting (Minor)

Accounting minors get a foundation of financial and managerial expertise and then add additional emphasis in areas like cost accounting, federal tax, and nonprofit accounting. An accounting minor layers the language of business onto other programs that might use it every day in the workplace like arts administrators or nurse managers.

Finance (BBA)

Viterbo’s finance program provides students with in-depth financial knowledge and strong analytical, communication, leadership, and decision-making skills for success in today’s always-expanding financial environment. Students in this program benefit from Viterbo’s Charles D. Gelatt Finance Simulation Laboratory, faculty with years of finance experience, and courses grounded in ethical decision-making for business professionals.

Finance (Minor)

Finance minors have a one course introduction to finance and then tailor their study to the areas of finance, personal economics, and financial accounting that interest them. Finance minors bring analytical skill to other careers that benefit from “run the numbers” decision-making and analytical thinking.
