Accounting is one of the most exciting and important roles in every organization - businesses, government or non-profit.  Employers are looking for inquisitive thinkers who can critically evaluate information and then communicate the core ideas in a brief manner.

The pinnacle of our program requires five years of course-work and prepares the student to sit for the CPA licensing exams. Students can complete a graduate certificate in either Professional Accounting or Professional Tax Practice.
