The accounting major prepares individuals for professional careers in public accounting, managerial accounting, taxation, accounting systems, and private and public sector financial management through a rigorous program of study. You will also:

  • gain the qualifications to take key exams
  • prepare to be a corporate manager
  • develop your organizational, communication and critical thinking skills
  • build a network with our accounting alumni, who are top performers in the field

Accounting is an excellent academic base for career development in both accounting and management roles.

Upon completion of the accounting major, a graduate meets the academic qualifications to take the examinations for Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA). Completion of the accounting degree will contribute a minimum of 120 credits to the required 150 necessary for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification.
