Accounting is the language of business that allows different entities to communicate effectively with each other. The Accounting profession provides this vital service to management and owners of business firms, investors, creditors, labor unions, government agencies and most importantly to the general public. The curriculum of the College's Accounting major is designed to provide individuals with communication, critical thinking, and analytical skills, as well as the technical proficiency needed to become professional accountants.

The liberal arts core and business support courses that are required of all accounting majors at Misericordia University address this need and help individuals acquire the necessary skills that will contribute to a productive life and satisfying career. The accounting faculty emphasizes the importance of these abilities in accounting courses that also contain the profession's technical body of knowledge. Accounting courses also integrate an extensive use of microcomputers and standard business software into instruction and student assignments. Students are given instruction in business writing and presentation skills.
