B.B.A. Major in Managerial Finance and Accounting
The Managerial Finance degree program combines the essential attributes of traditional accounting and managerial finance programs into a combined major that meets the needs of those individuals desiring careers in corporate finance or accounting.
Traditionally, accountants recorded transactions and other economic data and reported the results in the form of financial statements and internal managerial reports. Financial managers typically forecast, plan, and analyze accounting data and present the accounting data in formats convenient for decision making. There were some distinctions as well as overlaps in knowledge and skills needed in the two disciplines in the past.
Recently, business has undergone a shift in responsibilities within the areas of accounting and finance. Specifically, the areas of financial and managerial accounting and the various topics in corporate finance such as corporate finance theory, financial statement analysis and investments have become interdependent for those seeking career opportunities in internal management and control, treasury management, and strategic financial management.
Students may be admitted to the College of Business & Public Administration and may elect a major within a business discipline after completing at least 60 semester hours at UND or other accredited institutions.
They must also have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (2.0 is C) in all courses attempted and a “C” or better in the six courses comprising a sophomore-level pre-business core.
Students planning to transfer to UND from a junior college should enroll in only those junior college business courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at UND.
