Accounting and Management Information Systems
The Accounting and Management Information Systems Department in the Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Accounting and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Management Information Systems.
Accounting is the keystone in the decision-making process in any organization, regardless of size. Often referred to as the “language of business,” accounting is a high-demand, high-salaried field. Our graduates are ready to explore a wide-range of career opportunities. Upon graduation with a bachelor’s or master’s degree from Shippensburg University, with at least 24 credits of accounting course work, you may take the CPA exam. To obtain a CPA license, an additional 30 credits are required beyond the BSBA degree requirements. Many of our students fulfill this requirement by pursuing a five-year BSBA/MBA program designed specifically for accounting majors. This course of study allows you to transition seamlessly from your BSBA degree to the MBA program.
Our Management Information Systems graduates enjoy working with the latest technologies, interacting with other business professionals, and doing something different each day. They are in high-demand and receive one of the highest salaries within any organization. Information systems empower business. Integrating computer technology with business systems allows MIS majors to learn how to analyze the needs of an organization and design, implement, and maintain these information-based systems. Today's economic conditions have accelerated the demand for graduates with strong business operations and technical skills. Most MIS majors are able to select from among multiple job opportunities upon graduation.
