“Accountants must communicate financial information with integrity and fairness,” Professor Anita Wickersham said. “That means not presenting overly optimistic figures and using the information wisely to help allocate limited resources.” Her ethical approach expresses values common among Huntington business faculty and students. Girded by faith, equipped with up-to-the-minute skills and technology and confident in their calling, Huntington University business graduates effectively serve as “salt and light” within their chosen professions.
The Business and Economics Department at Huntington University offers five distinct programs. Students may choose specializations in accounting, economics and finance, management, marketing or small business management (entrepreneurship). Students may also choose minors in marketing, accounting, economics and finance, entrepreneurial small business and management.
As an accounting student at Huntington, you will focus on how both textbook knowledge and real world experience apply in the business world. Moreover, we will help you develop a Christian foundation for making business decisions. Our curriculum has been intentionally designed to integrate Christian perspectives and ethical considerations with business theory.
Of course, Christian character alone won’t necessarily lead to career success; you must also possess business competence and technical skill. At Huntington, you will receive a strong academic preparation and have access to the same technology you’ll meet in the work place.
As a business student at Huntington University, you may choose from a variety of internships. Through our Executive-in-Residence Program and Visiting Executive Seminars, you will have opportunities to wrestle with contemporary business issues alongside fellow students, faculty and regional business leaders.
