The quality of any accounting program is driven by the experience and dedication of the faculty standing at the front of the classroom. The Accounting faculty at Champlain College is second to none; all Accounting faculty members at Champlain are accomplished in the field before they become professors.
In accounting programs at other institutions, you’re likely to sit in a huge lecture hall with dozens, if not hundreds, of other accounting students. As an Accounting major at Champlain, however, you will benefit tremendously from the small class sizes and personal attention you receive from your professors.
Regardless of whether you eventually want to work at a “Big Four” firm, run the finance department at an entrepreneurial venture or work in another area, Champlain’s Accounting faculty will take a personal interest in your goals and work with you to create the learning opportunities and internships you’ll need to build a highly marketable resume.
