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.
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.
