Soft skill integration

The Association of International Certified Professional Accounts (AICPA) says, “Accountants are taking an increasingly visible role within their organizations, working on cross-departmental projects ranging from strategic planning to information technology initiatives. In addition, they are presenting data to a number of diverse audiences. As a result, employers look for accounting professionals who not only possess financial expertise but also strong communication skills.”

This major offers a distinctive experiential program that incorporates the teaching of communication into the upper-level accounting course sequence. Evaluated for accuracy, clarity and succinctness in both written and oral forms of communication, you will learn soft skills necessary for working with peers and communicating solutions to executives.
