What can a Bachelor of Business Degree do for you?
Holding a degree in Business Administration opens the door to a career that is an essential function of every corporation and organization imaginable. This fact affords the graduate accounting graduates a wide variety of career choices upon successful completion of our program. For those that learn the fundamental knowledge and skills, coupled with problem-solving abilities, the opportunities are limitless.
A wide variety of career choices for accountants exists. Public accounting consists of the “Big-Four” international CPA firms, in addition to national, regional, and local firms. Accountants in the public sector may pursue an interest in auditing, taxation, financial accounting, or management advisory services. Industry accounting offers graduates a chance to pursue managerial accounting, cost accounting or internal auditing careers. Not-For-Profit accounting includes federal, state and local governments; colleges and universities; health care institutions, and other nonprofit organizations.
We take pride in knowing that our program positions students for graduate-level studies. We also put our students on track for successful attainment of the coveted Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation. Our students are on record scoring as high as 96 on the CPA exam.
Accountants often establish their own accounting firms. Although very challenging, some of our graduates dedicated themselves to creating their own path through entrepreneurial endeavors recognizing accounting as their method. They developed the fundamental accounting skill sets and work ethic to do so. You too can be among them by joining us.
