Accounting is more than just numbers. It's problem-solving and helping organizations manage their finances and cash flow. Southern New Hampshire University's undergraduate accounting majors explore all facets of accounting. SNHU, a private, nonprofit university founded in 1932 as the New Hampshire School of Accounting and Secretarial Science, was established as an accounting college and is a recognized leader in business education.
Students gain a deep knowledge of foundational accounting practices, supplemented by the broader business-specific skills that employers are looking for, like the analytical and communication skills that are essential to reporting on money and resources in today's fast-paced world.
All of our accounting majors focus on developing students who are both business professionals and accounting professionals. You'll receive grounding in areas such as financial analysis, general accounting principles, auditing, taxation and more. From there, you can choose a business-oriented track that emphasizes the skills needed to communicate about numbers in the context of business goals or a concentration that digs deep into certain areas that match your interests and career goals.
