Public Accounting

Prepare to become a certified public accountant.

Student studies

Companies need—and are willing to pay generously for—CPAs who understand the tax code and approach their work with integrity.

Public accounting majors and students in our BSBA/MBA five-year program will qualify to take the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. As a CPA, you can work as a tax professional and help individuals, businesses, and organizations define and achieve their financial vision.

Our attentive faculty will also help connect you to an internship with numerous public and private accounting firms located in the surrounding areas, including the Big 4 firms in nearby Pittsburgh. An internship will help you earn valuable on-the-job experience and college credit for your work.
