Accountants know the numbers tell the real story about a business. About its growth. Its risks. About its potential. Helping others see that picture as clearly as you do so they can make informed decisions — that’s where you can add real value to your organization. And we’ll help you learn how.
Capital’s accounting major combines a broad business education with specialized competency in accounting. It prepares students for direct entry into the profession.
Our accounting graduates are highly sought-after, in the Columbus market and beyond, in part because of our internship program. We’ve placed students in some of the most reputable accounting firms around for more than 30 years. And in most cases, they go on to full-time employment at those firms after graduation.
In this major, you’ll get a strong foundation for professional certifications, like the CPA, and for graduate study. You'll also get effective personal guidance from professors whose reputation and industry connections will help you succeed.
At Capital, we embrace high-impact practices, like internships, capstone projects and undergraduate research. That means our professors teach you what you know for your next exam. But thy don't stop there. They teach you what you'll need to know for your next class, your next job, your next degree and your next career.
Potential employers interview qualified Capital accounting students on campus in the spring of their junior year for internships that begin in January of their senior year. If you’re selected, you’ll work full time for about 10 weeks, and then return to campus to complete your accounting coursework during the last several weeks of spring semester. You’ll get relevant work experience, course credit and a paycheck. Our internship partners include:
Our professors bring out the best in you. We won't lie. They can be tough. But they're also your counselors, your mentors, and your biggest advocates. Meet a few below, or view our department directory.
