Why Accounting?

Industry outlook

Any seasoned business executive can tell you that a skilled accountant is key to the success of any venture. Because of this, accounting today is a huge field with many job opportunities. The demand for candidates with degrees in accounting is only projected to increase further.

Our partners

Lindner College has fostered long-term relationships with the leading accounting firms such as BKD, Deloitte, Ernst & Young (EY), Grant Thornton, KPMG, and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Professional experience

Accounting students at Lindner have the added benefit of using co-ops and internships to test out the accounting field and determine whether they are passionate about being a public accountant, a tax consultant, a corporate budget analyst, an internal auditor, or an accounting director in governmental agencies.


The accounting faculty have varied research and related interests, publish in high quality accounting journals, and serve as reviewers and editors for many of these journals.
