The Division of Accounting, Business, and Economics offers an Accounting program that is consistent with the mission statement of Central Methodist University by providing professional preparation in accounting and business and by promoting lifelong learning and social responsibility. Within the program, students develop technical, interpersonal, and communication skills.

A Business approach to Accounting is used at CMU to emphasize the way businesses operate. Students are better prepared to enter not only accounting but also related fields. Accounting information is useful in such diverse areas as financial planning, health care, communications, law, engineering, forensics, actuarial science, and the fine arts. The degree in Accounting will prepare the student for graduate school in a number of disciplines.

CMU has two student organizations in business: Delta Mu Delta is a national honor society in business administration (advisor: Prof. John Flanders). DECA is an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe (advisor: Prof. Dave Hickman).
