Lakeland College

Accounting

Lakeland's accounting major, which was recently recognized as one of the best in the nation, does not simply teach one to balance books; it trains students to be economic problem-solvers and analysts, professionals who are able to identify, measure and make judgments about all types of economic information. These accounting skills lead to rewarding positions in financial and tax planning, business consulting, bookkeeping, auditing and many other fields in the global marketplace. In addition, with a few additional courses, the Lakeland accounting major qualifies its students to sit for the CPA and CMA examinations.
