The Department of Accounting at MTSU provides the foundation for students to successfully pursue various career paths in the accounting field. The three primary areas are public, industry, and governmental accounting. Students interested in public accounting can work with large, international firms or with smaller regional or local accounting firms. Within industry, students can pursue opportunities in either the manufacturing sector or the service sector; both areas have a wide range of organizational sizes. There are numerous opportunities in state, local, and Federal government agencies. Within each accounting arena, students might specialize in auditing, tax, consulting, accounting information systems, or other emerging areas of accounting. Recruiters from public accounting firms, industry, and government visit our campus each year.
