About The Program
Built on a strong foundation in the liberal arts, our traditional Accounting Program provides students with a broad understanding of accounting and business-related theory and practice. It also serves as an excellent foundation for seeking professional certification as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Certified Management Accountant (CMA).
Many students use their electives to complete a second major in business administration, complete professional internships with one of the numerous public accounting firms or corporations in the area, or study abroad. Through coursework, internships, and travel, you will acquire the necessary tools to understand business, communicate effectively, and think critically.
- LVC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
- Students also learn from real-world experts through the annual C.F. Tom Lecture in Economics and Springer Lecture in International Business, as well as from visiting Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence and Woodrow Wilson Fellows.
- Students gain practical experience working with local accountants through the annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, assisting low-income, elderly, and otherwise disadvantaged taxpayers complete their taxes.
The courses at LVC not only gave me an understanding of accounting principles I needed to start my career, but also valuable software experience as well.
