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 a career in a discipline (e.g. law, finance, computer information systems) where a strong accounting background can be advantageous. Courses can be arranged to provide students with the subjects needed for taking professional accounting exams such as the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and CMA (Certified Management Accounting) exams. Most students possessing a nonaccounting baccalaureate in a business discipline should expect to complete the certificate in 10 courses or 30 credit hours. Students who have not taken introductory accounting should expect to complete the certificate in 12 courses or 36 credit hours.
