Accounting

The accounting curriculum prepares students for a range of careers in accounting, and serves as an excellent background for graduate studies and law school. Students develop strong communication, interpersonal, and problem-solving capabilities while learning to apply theoretical concepts and to use accounting data, along with other analytical measurements, for decision making. Many challenging positions are available for students with accounting backgrounds.

1 May substitute 880-49600 Practicum in Tax Accounting for students not continuing into the Ithaca College M.B.A. in professional accountancy program.

For students interested in pursuing careers as certified public accountants, the accounting department offers a five-year, dual-degree program in accounting that is registered with the Certified Public Accountancy Board of Examiners of the State of New York. Students may receive a B.S. degree in accounting after four years of study and an M.B.A in professional accountancy after their fifth year of study. Admission to the M.B.A in professional accountancy is separate from admission to the B.S. in accounting (see below).

B.S. in Accounting

Note: Sitting for the CPA examination in the State of New York requires 150 hours of study. The School of Business has designed the following five-year, dual-degree program, the B.S. in accounting/M.B.A. in professional accountancy, to fulfill the requisite coursework. Students who opt to complete just the B.S. in accounting degree will not qualify to sit for the New York CPA examination.
