Undergraduate Programs

"...neither you nor I will know what the big issues will be when today's students will be at the height of their careers." 
        John Kemeny, former president of Dartmouth University

The main objective of our accounting programs is consistent with the edict  of the Accounting Education Change Commission--"to teach students to learn on their own...[students] must be active participants in the learning process, not passive recipients of information."

Baylor currently offers one undergraduate degree in Accounting (BBA).  Eligible students may complete a joint undergraduate and graduate degree program, earning either the BBA/MAcc or the BBA/MTax.

In general, students are likely to select the different degree paths for one or more of the following reasons:

BBA

  • desire to enter public or private accounting directly with no plan to sit for the CPA exam
  • completion of the accounting curriculum provides an excellent business foundation for other business careers such as banking, computer information systems, management
  • completion of the accounting curriculum provides an excellent level of knowledge and rigor  for graduate degrees such as an MBA or JD

BBA/MAcc

  • ultimate desire for graduate accounting degree with the opportunity to save 12 undergraduate hours

BBA/MTax

  • ultimate desire for graduate tax degree with the opportunity to save 12 undergraduate hours
