The BBA accounting curriculum is designed to prepare the student for a career as a professional accountant. Students are encouraged to declare their intention to major in accounting as early as possible after enrolling at DBU. A full-time accounting professor will counsel with each declaring student individually to develop a semester-by-semester degree plan to assure proper sequence of courses. Students may not continue as accounting majors unless they maintain a Grade Point Average of 3.0 in their upper-level accounting courses.

Mission Statement:
The purpose of the Accounting Program of Dallas Baptist University is to provide a Christ-centered, high quality, accounting education by focusing on faith-integration, excellence in classroom instruction, and competence-building activities in order to produce servant leaders.

Programs:

BBA Accounting Degree: Graduates with a BBA in Accounting will demonstrate competence in the foundational areas of business and possess the technical skills and accounting knowledge necessary to assume an entry-level accounting role in whatever business they choose.  The BBA degree alone does not qualify a student to register for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.  Students enrolled in the BBA degree program are required to complete a minimum of 120 credit hours.

The BBA accounting major prepares students for careers as professional accountants in business. In addition to the eleven common-core courses required of all BBA degree programs, which include 6 hours of principles level accounting courses, accounting majors complete nine required upper-level accounting courses and one upper level business elective.

Accelerated BBA/MBA Accounting Degree: Students enrolled in the Accelerated BBA/MBA Accounting degree program are required to complete a minimum of 150 credit hours. The BBA/MBA accounting major prepares students for careers as professional accountants in public practice. In addition to 11 common-core courses required of all BBA degree programs, which include 6 hours of principles level accounting courses, and seven common-core courses required of all MBA degree programs, accounting majors complete fourteen required upper-level accounting courses.
