B.S. in Accounting

Accounting is considered the language of business. More specifically, accounting is the analysis and recording of economic data, followed by the preparation of reports that can be used in an organization’s decision-making process. 

Saint Mary’s B.S. in Accounting program is designed to prepare students for careers in corporations, public accounting firms, government, and nonprofit organizations. The program develops the technical competencies, communication skills, and ethical frameworks that are valued by today’s employers.

CMA/CPA Exams and Certification

Students complete courses that provide a foundation for the CMA and CPA exams. Additional courses necessary to fulfill the 150-semester-hour requirement for CPA certification are available at the undergraduate level or in our graduate programs.

As a working adult, you have experience that matters. Your firsthand knowledge will enhance classroom discussions, and you’ll gain skills that employers want. Plus, with Saint Mary's generous credit transfer policies, the coursework that you've already completed will help you finish your degree faster.
