Accounting is a popular major at Loyola in part because it offers a wide range of career opportunities following graduation such as auditors, tax advisors, and management consultants in the public accounting setting. In private business, non-profit organizations, and government, our graduates fill a variety of managerial and technical positions in auditing, controllership, taxation, and administration. An undergraduate accounting degree also serves as an excellent background for a career in law.
