BBA with Major in Managerial Finance and Accounting
The College of Business & Public Administration mixed two rigorous disciplines into one powerful major – the managerial finance & accounting degree. This major is specially designed for those interested in becoming a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) or a Certified Financial Manager (CFM).
Both the CMA and CFM are national designations that also require the passage of a national examination. The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) establishes the standards or criteria for achieving the CMA designation. While the CMA examination is similar to the CPA examination, the CMA examination concentrates more heavily on corporate accounting and financial analysis.
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.
