Accounting is offered through the Paul Dickinson College of Business.
The accounting degree at OBU is a rigorous program designed to equip students for a variety of professional jobs upon graduation. Primarily, it is designed to prepare graduates to pass the Uniform Certified Public Accountant examination. Nonetheless, that process also prepares students not aspiring to become CPAs to work in nearly any industry. We seek to prepare students to fill God’s calling in their lives by providing them with the skills to achieve their goals.
