Your career possibilities are endless as every aspect of society needs accountants. There is employment in forensic accounting/auditing for financial law enforcement, in a range of federal and state agencies, in major corporations and in smaller businesses. You can use your accounting skills as an entrepreneur or for other entrepreneurs.
Our experienced faculty bring to the classroom robust academic credentials and real working experience. You will learn directly from faculty who work with clients and involve students in you case studies.
Internships play an imperative roll in the learning experience. At Finlandia, our small class sizes help teachers and students connect, communicate and plan their interests in a professional internship. Teachers place a focus on experiential learning tailored to the students’ career goals.
I really enjoyed the accounting program. Laura Sieders was such an amazing professor and she really took an interest in our work and our lives. I am fortunate that I will be leaving with such a wide knowledge of the field and hope to build on what I have learned later on.
Throughout all of my courses, Professor Laura (Sieders) shared realistic examples from her own experiences. She shared real world problems that had to be analyzed and solved based on what we learned in class. In college you read textbooks and do all kinds of assignments, but there is often no concrete experience or realistic problems presented for you to figure out. That wasn’t the case. In a small university like Finlandia you get to have more time with a professor.
If I had to select one opportunity that is helping me succeed, I would have to choose the opportunity to be a part of the BPA (Business Professionals of America) program. The reason I appreciate this program is because it offers the chance to make connections that will help with your career.
At Finlandia University, you’re encouraged to test your knowledge of accounting principles while also explore the surrounding Keweenaw Peninsula.
In the classroom, you will gain an interdisciplinary understanding of accounting theory and concepts. You will develop an understanding of the ethical and social impacts of accounting.
Outside the classroom, recreational opportunities in the area are tremendous. You have the chance to bike, hike, swim, fish and visit some of the most beautiful locations in Michigan.
