HBU Accounting Alumni Society
Accounting teaches you how to track money; Economics teaches you how to make decisions; Finance teaches you how to make money work for you.

The HBU Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance prepares students to be

  • CPAs,
  • investment bankers,
  • corporate executives,
  • economists,
  • corporate treasurers,
  • financial planners,
  • and many other kinds of business professionals.

Not only do we prepare them for these professions academically, but we prepare them to live well and succeed in the business world. HBU's faculty uses their networking connections to bring in experienced business leaders for guest lectures, mock interviews, to review students' resumes, and to impart real life business experience to the students.

Our students have presented papers at the Dallas Federal Reserve, obtained internships and/or full time positions with large, international accounting firms, been accepted to law schools in Texas, and have found employment with finance and accounting firms.
