The accounting and finance programs at Southeastern have a long history of providing students outstanding opportunities to learn and grow. As you read the information here, you will understand more about what we do and how we do it. But, words don't tell the whole story. That's because it is being told in the lives of students, graduates, and faculty and in the communities they serve. That story– your story– begins in our classrooms, but it doesn't end there.

In our classrooms you will grow in confidence as you interact with faculty and peers who are committed to teaching and learning. In our hallways you will build relationships that will sustain you through your academic career and beyond. As your world gets bigger and more complex, you will find that your knowledge and skills are growing to meet the challenge. Finally, as you prepare to cross the stage at graduation, you will feel the satisfaction of knowing that a bright future awaits you on the other side. We want to help you on your first steps toward that bright future. 

We hope that you will find the information on this site to be helpful to you. You can view the curricula that we offer, read and view student and alumni testimonials, check out faculty webpages, and scroll through job postings for interns and graduates.
