The BBA accounting curriculum is designed to prepare the student
for an accounting career in private accounting. 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.
