Accounting Minor

This minor, requiring seven courses, provides a systematic program of study in accounting. Completing it is not equivalent to an accounting degree, nor does it make students eligible to take the certified public accounting exam. Rather, it provides an integrated approach to issues that may benefit students who seek careers in business and in the financial services industry. 

The accounting minor is available to any interested student in Fordham College at Rose Hill or Gabelli School of Business at Rose Hill.

Students of any major may elect to complete an accounting minor, whether in the Gabelli School or Fordham College. A total of seven courses are required:

Any course with the ACBU subject code numbered 3000 or higher may fulfill this requirement.

Liberal arts students may use Basic Microeconomics to satisfy one of their core social science requirements. It is advisable that students interested in pursuing the accounting minor take ECON 1200 BASIC MICROECONOMICS as early as possible as it is a prerequisite for the accounting classes. In addition, as many of the accounting classes are sequential, it is recommended that students begin this minor no later than the fall of sophomore year.

Availability

The minor in accounting is available for Gabelli School and Fordham College students at Rose Hill. Students in other programs may complete the program if their schedule permits.
