Welcome to the Department of Accounting and Finance at The Citadel. We invite you to explore the variety of opportunities offered in our program.
Accounting and finance are inter-related fields that measure, analyze, and evaluate the performance of an organization. All students in the Baker School of Business take at least one finance and two accounting classes. For those wanting to focus their career in financial services, we offer both an accounting major and a finance major, providing students with the opportunity to excel in a strong area of study leading to a degree that directly impacts a business’s success. Citadel alumni have achieved distinguished careers in accounting and finance, blending their academic work with the core values and principles of the institution.
Our program helps you develop the skills for a successful and rewarding career in financial services. The coursework is challenging and practical, with additional opportunities for students to get hands-on experience through internships which may lead to full-time positions after graduation. Outside speakers, organized field trips, and special seminars supplement our curriculum.
