What is Accounting and Finance major?

The BBA degree in Accounting and Finance at USAL is offered by the Faculty of Management, Finance, and Economics and designed as a dual concentration. It aims at providing students with a strong foundation in accounting theory and principles, along with practical skills in accounting and related areas. It also equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a fast-paced career in investment banking, financial advice, and in the finance division of any corporation. Students graduate industry-ready and with the skills to work in a diverse range of sectors including large corporations, start-ups, not-for-profit, or in government. A major in finance and accounting provides these opportunities both locally and internationally.

These two fields are concomitant and complementary, and their study in one discipline increases the opportunities for students in the workforce.
