Accounting Minor

The accounting program offers a minor for students in majors other than accounting. The accounting minor fits into the curricula of SUNYIT by providing students with the opportunity to acquire knowledge in an important professional discipline that can complement their major. The minor adds value to a degree because all organizations maintain accounting systems and require that their employees understand the financial implications of tactical and strategic decisions. In an increasingly competitive job market, accounting knowledge can play a consequential role in satisfying the needs of employers.
