The Department of Accounting & Finance offers rigorous and structured programs designed to prepare our students for challenging careers.
The Accounting concentration prepares students for a variety of positions leading to management level careers in corporate and public accounting, auditing and taxation. This concentration will also assist in preparing students for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam or the Certified Management Accounting (CMA) exam.
Our students are in high demand by local and regional firms and are actively recruited. Recently, several national, big-four CPA firms have instituted formalized recruiting arrangements with our program.
We have both a Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a Concentration in Accounting. Our MSA program is 150-hour compliant and meets all requirements to qualify for CPA licensure per the Massachusetts Board of Public Accountancy.
Because our programs are rigorous and demanding, students are expected to be prepared to work hard.
The Finance Concentration prepares students for positions in banking, investments, financial planning, cash management and international finance in both public and private institutions. This concentration will also assist in preparing students for professional certifications such as the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) or Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
