While it is common for colleges to have separate accounting and finance programs, some institutions have dual programs that incorporate aspects from both of these fields. Here are the highlights of college level accounting and finance that will be incorporated into a dual program:

Accounting :

Accounting programs focus on personal financial management for individuals and businesses. These programs will help you learn to generate financial statements, keep and audit records, and consult clients.


Finance programs focus on evaluating statements and advising financial decisions within a company. These programs will help you understand economics, global markets, and how to advise clients in financial planning.

A dual accounting and finance program will integrate these aspects as well as give you a basic understanding of communication and business. An accounting and finance degree will prepare you for a range of positions after graduation, including entry-level accounting jobs, financial analyst jobs, and business positions.
