Associate in Business Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0255  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This curriculum is intended for people with a bachelor's degree in another field who want to make a career change to accounting.  The focus is on learning the material necessary to pass the exam to become a Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.).  Virtually all jobs in accounting and auditing are available to the C.P.A.  The main job a C.P.A. is eligible to do that other accountants cannot is that of external auditor, which involves expressing an independent opinion on financial statements prepared by others.  Some public accounting experience is required prior to certification in some states.  The student is advised to review the requirements for certification as defined by the State Board of Accountancy.  In addition, students should contact the Board of Accountancy, State of Michigan, Consumer and Industry Services to receive an authoritative list of requirements to sit for the C.P.A. exam.
