Bachelor of Arts in Accounting and Financial Management (2 + 2)

Hiram’s Bachelor of Arts in Accounting and Financial Management develops the student’s ability to evaluate, analyze, and critique business strategies and transactions based on a complex body of accounting, tax, auditing and cost management principles.  The Accounting and Financial Management major further enables students to recognize the financial and economic impact of such business strategies, use and develop financial models to assist in the analysis of business strategies, and effectively communicate the results of such analysis.

For students who are not planning on careers in public accounting, the Hiram College bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Financial Management prepares them for careers in business, industry, finance, non-profit organizations, or government.

The program is designed so that 50% of this partnership is LCCC coursework, and the final 50% is Hiram College coursework.  Hiram College courses are taught by Hiram College faculty in person, online or via distance learning.  Students can complete the accounting degree in its entirety on LCCC’s campus.
