The program is open to anyone who possesses a bachelor's degree in any field from an accredited college or university. 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).
