Program Overview

To meet the growing demands of the accounting field, our program encompasses a wide range of curricular and extracurricular components, emphasizing the demands of a complex professional environment.

A unique benefit of our accounting program is that you can combine your undergraduate work with our innovative MBA program, a beneficial option if you wish to complete the 150-hour CPA exam requirement of most states. As a full-time student, you will be able to complete the combined degree program in five years or less. Modifications to this program allow you to pursue a second undergraduate major or minor without increasing total degree requirements. Double majors or minors in entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management information systems and operations management are especially popular.
