The accounting and business administration majors provide a broad-based education that will expose you to essential principles and concepts that can readily be applied to your career. You will also develop versatile administrative and analytical skills that can be used in the world of business and finance.
Your education will be enhanced with numerous opportunities for hands-on learning through internships, business networking, research with faculty members, and projects with business clients in which you will work in such areas as advertising, human resources, market research and business plan development. In our Integrated Consulting Experience (ICE) program, you will gain the real, viable experience employers seek, while using material learned in the classroom, as a student consultant for actual businesses and organizations. During the experience, which may last up to 15 weeks, you will conduct analysis and make recommendations to key decision-makers. Also, many of our accounting majors have gained IRS-certification to prepare tax returns as a community service for lower income residents and others in-need.

My name is Nathan Johnson and I am a junior at Wilmington College. I am majoring in Finance and Accounting. I came to Wilmington for VITA and the soccer program. I then learned I no longer wanted play soccer, so I joined Lambda Chi Alpha and SGA. After being a part of a few leadership positions in other organizations I am now the president of my fraternity, the student coordinator for VITA and have been the treasurer of SGA for two years.
