Program Mission and Objectives

In support of the missions of Auburn University at Montgomery and the College of Business, the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration-Accounting Specialization is intended to provide students with knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level positions and advancement in accounting. The program provides an in-depth study in the basic core areas of accounting and serves a market consisting of full-time, part-time, and evening students from Montgomery and the Central Alabama region. 

Our objectives are to provide:

-  Students with the:

  • Necessary educational background for entry into and advancement in the accounting profession.
  • Skills necessary for success in the accounting profession.
  • Educational background necessary for entry into a graduate Program.

-  Intellectual contributions through a mix of discipline-based contributions to practice and pedagogy that can be applied in the business and government environments and in classroom instruction.

Although the education requirements to take the Uniform CPA Examination as an Alabama candidate are higher than the minimum requirements for our B.S.B.A.-Accounting Specialization, these additional requirements can be satisfied through the Auburn University at Montgomery M.B.A. Program or by completing additional undergraduate courses.

Our quality is reflected in the success of our students, alumni, and the faculty and in the enhancement of the personal and professional lives of community residents through faculty service and research.
