Carroll University offers three tracks in accounting for students interested in preparing for a position of leadership and responsibility in accounting in the public, private or governmental sectors of our economy.

Track #1 is designed for students wishing to complete an accounting major that will enable them, upon graduation, to obtain a position in a corporate or not-for-profit organization.

Track #2 is designed for students interested in obtaining a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation. Students wishing to meet the requirements to “sit” for the CPA exam can do so in four years by following a specified curriculum. This curriculum requires completion of 150 credit hours. With careful planning additional competencies can be gained that will allow the student to consider other certifications (described below). Students should carefully coordinate with their academic advisor if they wish to complete this track in four years.

With careful planning, the requirements for either TRACK #1 OR TRACK #2 can be completed within a four-year period (not the traditional five-year period).

Track #3 BS/MBA/CPA
