Accounting Minor (BACT)

A Minor You Can Count on

Accounting is involved in a wide variety of careers.  RIT undergraduate students from outside the Saunders College will gain analytical and organizational skills that are an integral part of the accounting minor.  Business students completing a major in something other than accounting will broaden their learning experiences and professional opportunities by having more depth in operational accounting topics.
