Accounting is the language of business, and Fordham professors help their students to become fluent in that language. Core-level accounting classes give students the basic skills to interpret and analyze financial statements, while upper-level and special-topics courses—such as corporate taxation and ethics in financial reporting—help them specialize their knowledge. Fordham's accounting faculty works with highly motivated students through the university's chapter of Beta Alpha Psi and routinely coaches teams in prestigious accounting competitions organized by multinational accounting firms. Fordham is also on the cutting edge of teaching sustainability reporting.
