About Business Administration (Accounting concentration), BS - at Midway University

The Business Administration Accounting concentration at Midway University is designed to prepare learners for leadership positions in the fast-growing and challenging field of accounting.Robert Half, a leading employment placement firm, estimates an 18% to 26% increase in accounting jobs during the next few years, and clearly the profession has grown into being much more than just 'numbers crunching.'

Accounting professionals perform vital functions for their clients or organizations by offering an increasingly wide array of services.

The Business Administration Accounting degree meets the course requirements to sit for the CPA exam. Kentucky, along with most other states, requires candidates who sit for the CPA exam to have completed 150 hours of coursework, including a baccalaureate degree. Learners interested in sitting for the exam may complete additional hours of undergraduate or graduate coursework at Midway or another institution.

The Accounting concentration courses are offered as part of our online program. All other coursework for this degree is offered in-seat as part of our 16-week semester courses.

This concentration exposes students to four significant areas of accounting, including:

  • Auditing procedures, generally accepted auditing standards and other standards related to attest engagements, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.
  • Knowledge of general business environment and business concepts that professionals need to know to understand the underlying business reasons for, and accounting implications of, business transactions, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.
  • Generally accepted accounting training and principles for business enterprises, not-for-profit organizations and governmental entities, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.
  • Knowledge of federal taxation, ethics, professional and legal responsibilities, and business law, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge.
