Students graduating with a degree in Management or Accounting from UNC Asheville have the advantage of a program that integrates the values and skills of the liberal arts so central to our University with a professional program that focuses on a productive future. Graduates prepare to use critical thinking and effective communication to address the responsibilities they will face as decision makers, whether in economic, political, or social arenas.
From introductory courses to capstone courses, the ratio of faculty to students offers an opportunity for students to explore ideas and ask questions that expand and illuminate the lessons. Outside the classroom, faculty interact with students through one to one advising on academic progress, projects, and aspirations. Education is both interactive and ongoing. Students build their capacity to perform as individuals, but they also learn the value of teamwork and the attitudes and actions that support complex, cooperative outcomes.
Students have opportunity to expand their understanding, develop leadership and serve their fellow students through the Accountancy Association and the Student Management Association. Those who are interested inresearch work one to one with faculty on undergraduate research projects. Internships can provide a test of practical applications of concepts learned in the classroom. Service learning is integrated into the curriculum.
