The vision of the program is that graduates acquire the ability to use the academic knowledge and expertise gained in this program to change the current culture of the business environment which is contrary to ethical principles and based on the culture of materialism and, in particular, the manipulation of accounting records in companies and organizations.
The Accounting Department aims to nurture and train accountants and financial managers and to equip entrepreneurs to engage in critical analysis of every aspect of their lives as they seek to live a cohesive Baháʼí life. It is the hope that those trained in accounting at BIHE will contribute their financial expertise towards fundamental changes in Iran’s business environment.
