The accountancy program consists of three distinct options: an undergraduate degree in managerial accounting, a 3:2 program consisting of a business management major followed by the master's of accountancy, and a stand-alone master's of accountancy. Students interested in obtaining licensure as a certified public accountant (CPA) should pursue one of the master's of accountancy options. The 3:2 program is designed for those students who do not already have an undergraduate degree, and the stand-alone accountancy program is for those applicants who already have an undergraduate degree in a field other than accounting.

The master's of accountancy courses are offered in a four-semester sequence, which makes the program ideal for first-time freshman and undergraduate transfers. Students should have no trouble completing the requirements for the master's of accountancy, provided that they have identified accounting as their intended field of study by the beginning of their junior year.

For those students interested in careers outside public accounting, the managerial accounting major is an ideal way to obtain an accounting education with an internal management perspective. Upon completing the major, students are qualified to sit for the certified management accountant exam.

Can't decide which type of accounting degree you would prefer? Well, that is no problem because the courses required in the two options are the same until the beginning of your senior year. You do not have to decide right now which option is right for you.
