Earn a Degree in Accounting, a Profession Poised for Growth

NCU doctoral professors help develop your understanding of how to scrutinize accounting data, including business transactions and statements related to the assets, liabilities, and operating results of business enterprises and nonprofit organizations. Graduates of the advanced accounting specialization can pursue senior leadership positions in accounting, auditing, or in academia.
