'Salt and Light' in Your Profession
“Accountants must communicate financial information with integrity and fairness,” Professor Anita Wickersham said. “That means not presenting overly optimistic figures and using the information wisely to help allocate limited resources.” Her ethical approach expresses values common among Huntington business faculty and students. Girded by faith, equipped with up-to-the-minute skills and technology and confident in their calling, Huntington University business graduates effectively serve as “salt and light” within their chosen professions.
Intentional Learning for a Successful Career
As an accounting student at Huntington, you will focus on how both textbook knowledge and real world experiences apply in the business world. Moreover, we will help you develop a Christian foundation for making business decisions. Our curriculum has been intentionally designed to integrate Christian perspectives and ethical considerations with business theory. Students also can pair their degree with a minor such as marketing, accounting, economics and finance, entrepreneurial small business and management.
Of course, Christian character alone won’t necessarily lead to career success; you must also possess business competence and technical skill. At Huntington, you will receive a strong academic preparation and have access to the same technology you’ll meet in the work place.
As a business student at Huntington University, you may choose from a variety of internships. Through our Executive-in-Residence Program and Visiting Executive Seminars, you will have opportunities to wrestle with contemporary business issues alongside fellow students, faculty and regional business leaders.
