Accounting - Information Systems Auditing - BBA
The Instructional Program
The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Accounting - Information Systems Auditing program follows the required model curriculum for the Information Systems Auditing Exam. The curriculum has been designed to include the components of IS that are required to make students marketable with entry-level skills and capability for the profession, and include the seven major content areas of the Certified Information Systems Auditor Exam.
The bachelor degree program does not replace the associate degree program in accounting; rather, it builds on that program. Students may enter as freshmen or apply for transfer into the program after earning an associate degree, provided they meet the entry performance qualifications. As in any field, increased levels of education and experience improve one's chances for professional and managerial advancement.
