Preparing Christian Leaders in the Marketplace
In addition to excellent instruction, accounting students will be challenged to integrate their Christian faith into their learning by reconciling how accounting guidelines and practices match with Biblical principles. The accounting program is structured to not only develop excellence in students’ accounting competencies, but also to build a foundation for career advancement into the highest levels of professional accountancy. Students may also choose to continue their accounting education in graduate school or to sit for one of the many industry certification exams.
This makes accounting students essential in the workforce.
Workplaces need confident, reliable, ethical accountants who are competent in their field of expertise. At Oklahoma Wesleyan, we prepare students to be successful as leaders and witnesses in the workplace through their work ethic, capabilities, and passions.
As an accounting student, your education will include courses such as:
- Business management
- Accounting information systems
- Business ethics
- Macro- and micro-economics
At Oklahoma Wesleyan, you will study under seasoned business professionals with expertise in their field, participate in internships, and learn the importance of Biblical principles guiding business ethics, which will provide you an advantage when you enter the labor force.
