Accounting is “the language of business” and is an essential part of every business organization. The study of accounting helps students develop analytical and problem-solving skills as well as master the principles that govern financial reporting and decision making.

A career in accounting can take many directions – from auditing, tax advising and consulting to financial management, banking and criminal investigation.  Notably, accounting is one of the preferred majors for students seeking a career with the FBI.  Through our strong reputation and alumni network, Belmont offers outstanding placement opportunities for internships and permanent positions to our accounting students and graduates. Approximately one third of our graduates will find employment with a Big 4 accounting firm, another third with a regional accounting firm, and the last third will go on to work for local corporations, with a large portion securing a position in healthcare. Please click here for a list of employers who have hired our accounting alumni. 

At Belmont, the accounting faculty bring excellent academic credentials and professional experience to the classroom, which enable them to provide relevant instruction and valuable career advice. In addition, Belmont’s undergraduate and graduate accounting programs have achieved specialized accounting accreditation by AACSB International, placing Belmont among the less than one percent of the world's business schools to have earned both business and accounting accreditations. 

The Jack C. Massey College of Business has a Master of Accountancy program, which provides our students the option of continuing their education, completing 150 credit hours, which will then allow them to sit for the CPA exam.
