Finance & Accounting

The finance concentration is designed to prepare students for the exciting and lucrative field of financial services. Many of our alumni go on to work in banks, private equity, hedge funds, corporate finance and wealth management. The concentration requires 15 hours of finance courses beyond the business and general education core requirements. Finance concentration students take Advanced Corporate Finance to learn more about finance in corporations, Management of Financial Institutions to learn more about banking, and Investments to learn more about the various securities markets.

Accounting is the language of business. A student choosing the accounting concentration is choosing to prepare himself for any field of business by having a deep and thorough understanding of the foundation of businesses. Many of our alumni from accounting go on to work in the top four public accounting firms but just as many or more move into other fields, like banking, consulting, or technology. Accounting concentration students learn not only how to maintain the financial records of an organization but also how leaders use accounting information to make decisions. Students are also expected to recognize the high ethical standards required of the accounting profession. A graduate of the accounting concentration at Morehouse has a solid foundation to pursue the CPA designation and is encouraged to do so. Many of our alumni earned the CPA title.
