What undergraduate major has been in high demand for nearly a decade? Accounting. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Job Outlook Survey of 2016 indicated accounting is the second most demanded major of all undergraduate majors. This continues a trend observed by NACE since 2008.

Marietta's Accounting Program prepares students for careers in public and private accounting, business and industry, non-profits and government. Our students, who are regularly employed by major accounting firms such as Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Plante & Moran, develop close working relationships with our dedicated faculty.
