The Accountancy minor provides an opportunity to understand the development and use of financial and accounting information within organizations. The minor is intended to aid in relating business activities to financial results and reporting. The program may also serve as a thematic sequence for non-business majors and also serve as a potential entrance to the Masters of Accountancy program for non-accountancy majors. The program capacity will be limited each year. Priority will be provided to students who wish to enter the Masters of Accountancy program.

The Accountancy minor requires 18 hours of Accounting credit, composed of the introductory financial (ACC 221) and management accounting (ACC 222) courses, and the student's choice (subject to prerequesite requirements) of 4 three credit hour courses at the 300 and 400 levels.

For complete requirements and course descriptions, see the Miami bulletin.
