An education with a world of possibilities.

Accounting is often called “the universal language of business” because the core competencies you’ll learn—enterprise-wide perspective, focus on performance and strategic information management—are relevant to every company and organization. With a degree in accounting from the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, you’ll understand how business works from the inside out. Your fluency in the language of business, the fundamentals that every company is built upon, will prepare you for a career in almost any field.
