Why accounting?
The accounting major prepares students for a variety of careers in accounting. Course work accommodates students interested in public accounting (CPAs), management accounting (CMAs), controllership, taxation, and/or governmental accounting. The university’s accounting program meets the requirements for taking the Uniform CPA exam in Minnesota and many other states. The university offers several ways for students to meet the educational requirements for CPA licensure. Students who are considering the CPA path are strongly encouraged to consult an accounting faculty member early in their college career to individually determine the best way to meet the requirements.
