The Post-Baccalaureate Accounting Certificate is designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in a non-accounting discipline and desire either a career in accounting or to work in a field where a strong accounting background can be advantageous. The program is open to anyone who possesses a bachelor's degree in any field from an accredited college or university. Students in the program come from a broad spectrum of individuals who wish to move into a field that is both challenging and rewarding.
Students who complete the Accounting Certificate program will be prepared for positions in bookkeeping or as accounting or auditing clerks. The program is a perfect fit for managers or business owners who need accounting skills to advance their careers or better manage their businesses. Many of the courses completed in the program can also be used to meet prerequisite requirements for admission to the Master of Science in Accountancy program and will contribute to the requirements students need to meet to take the Certified Public Accounting Exam (CPA) and/or Certified Management Accountancy Exam (CMA).
