Holy Family is proud to offer students a highly supportive learning environment that values their personal and professional goals. Students in our Accounting program thrive in our small yet challenging learning environment. We believe in educating beyond the classroom for all academic programs, including our accounting major. Philadelphia provides opportunities for hands-on experience, which is a key component of your college education.
What Can You Do With This Major?
Accounting is an excellent career for students with good math abilities, strong computer skills, and the ability to analyze and present complex financial information. The Accounting program at Holy Family University prepares students for entry-level positions in corporate, government, or public accounting, emphasizing an overall global business perspective and understanding of business ethics and standards of social responsibility for the profession.
Our Accounting graduates are part of a large network of alumni with a record of success in their field.
Here are just a few of the positions our recent accounting graduates hold:
