More than just “keeping the books,” accountants track, analyze and interpret financial information, and their insights inform critical business decisions.

The accounting program at Emmanuel is ahead of the curve preparing students for what is coming. We’re providing students with the opportunity to explore the impact of advanced technologies in a rapidly changing world. Emmanuel’s Accounting program prepares students for the future of accounting by incorporating data tools and analytics throughout the curriculum. Tableau, Alteryx, and Lucidcharts are some of the software tools our students use to inform critical business decisions for organizations.
