The Minor in Accounting and Financial Information course of study will help you develop a stronger understanding of the accounting data used for analytical decision-making across all disciplines. Professionals with greater accounting knowledge can provide greater value to clients and employers by understanding not just “top-level” numbers, but also the relationships between these numbers and how accounting choices and management decisions influence these numbers. These skills are critical regardless of your career path.
What is accounting and financial information?
Accounting is called “the first language” of business that underlies financial analysis and decision making. It is a way to communicate the financial health of a business or an organization to all interested parties. The minor in accounting and financial information is intended for undergraduate students majoring in academic programs outside of Paul College, as well as non-accounting option students within Paul College who wish to develop stronger skills in this area.
Why minor in accounting and financial information at UNH?
The minor in accounting and financial information at UNH compliments just about any field of study. It will provide you with a broader set of career opportunities and knowledge to better understand the relationship between the “top-level” numbers and how accounting choices impact those numbers, and vice versa. It is different from the accounting option within the business administration major in that it is not intended to prepare you for CPA licensure. To complete the minor, you take required courses in accounting and electives, including course offerings focused on the hospitality, health care, and engineering/science industries.
