The accounting curriculum prepares students to sit for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination. In New Jersey, students need 150 semester hours of college credits. The undergraduate accounting program combined with the Master of Science in Accounting is designed to meet this requirement. In addition the degree is an excellent base for students planning on pursuing an M.B.A. or an M.S. in accounting.
