The Undergraduate Program

The Accounting Minor

The Rady School of Management’s accounting minor is designed to provide students a breadth of understanding of accounting theory, practices, and applications. The minor will appeal to students who envision careers in the accounting profession. Because of accounting’s broad application, these careers would span across public accounting firms, corporate accounting departments, and governmental, nonprofit, and nongovernmental organizations. For many students, this will be their first step in achieving a Certificate in Public Accounting, CPA.

Accounting Minor Requirements

The accounting minor will consist of seven courses that cover the key accounting principles, processes, and applications. Required courses include two lower-division courses and five upper-division courses.

Lower-Division Courses
Upper-Division Courses

In order to count toward the minor, all courses must be taken for a letter grade and students must earn a C– or better in each course. Lower-division transfer credits for courses that are clearly equivalent in scope and content to lower-division courses required for the accounting minor will be accepted from regionally accredited United States institutions and from foreign institutions recognized by the Rady School of Management.

CPA Accounting Requirements

A student who completes nine Rady accounting courses (the seven courses required for the minor plus two electives for a total of thirty-six quarter units) will have met the current accounting educational requirement for CPA licensure. The CPA education requirements changed effective January 1, 2014, and include additional educational requirements. Find more information here: http://www.dca.ca.gov/cba/applicants/lic_require.shtml.

Because of business’s broad application, UC San Diego students with a minor in business will be well prepared to assume entry and intermediate positions in the business functions of a vast number large and small for-profit companies, governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, and nongovernmental entities. Additionally, graduates pursuing careers not directly related to formal business functions, but still impacted by business practices, will bring a much-valued perspective to their initial employment.
