Accounting (Minor)

The Accounting Minor helps students:

  • Gain familiarity with financial accounting, managerial accounting, and other accounting topics.
  • Understand that accounting is an information system for measuring, processing, and communicating financial information about economic entities.
  • Understand how accounting information allows users to make reasoned choices among alternative uses of scarce resources in the conduct of business and economic activities.

The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program.  If transfer credits contribute to the completion of the minor, students need to ensure that official transcripts are sent and processed at NC State.
