The top priority of the Utah Tech Accounting Department is to facilitate the development of value-added accounting graduates; graduates who, immediately upon employment, excel at all of the following:
- generating bank reconciliations
- creating and analyzing financial statements
- producing individual and entity tax returns and professional quality tax research memos
- completing staff-level audit tasks
- interacting comfortably with practitioners and clients
Our accounting graduates acquire value-added skills and applicable knowledge in highly interactive, student-oriented learning environments. Accomplished faculty teach accounting concepts in the context of their application, transcending Utah Tech’s accounting education from merely theoretical to an applied, heuristic learning experience. If you would like to distinguish yourself from the crowd of traditionally textbook trained accounting graduates, come to Utah Tech University where you can get the best “can do” accounting education under the sun.
