The Accounting & Finance Department offers majors in Accounting and Finance.  In cooperation with the Marketing & Management Department, there is a Business Minor available for non-business students; the Marketing & Management and Justice Studies Departments work in conjunction with the Accounting & Finance Department to offer a Law and Business Minor as well.

The Accounting and Finance majors are designed to teach a broad range of transferable skills, strong competence in critical thinking, and hands-on business experience. There are a wide variety of Connected Learning sites on campus for Business students, including, for instance, Lasell Village, the Holway Child Study Centers, Lasell College Accounts Payable and the Financial Aid Office. In addition, there are many Connected Learning opportunities off-campus, including field trips to such locations as L.L. Bean, the Boston Financial District, and The Boston Globe.

The Internship program provides a capstone work experience for all Business students during their senior year. By graduation, all students will have had the opportunity to explore an assortment of business venues ranging from small, entrepreneurial companies to large, Fortune 500 businesses.
