The Warrington College of Business offers undergraduate and graduate accounting programs, both ranked in the top 10 publics by U.S. News & World Report.
Accounting serves as an ideal base line for many careers in different industries.
The accounting programs also maintain high job placement rates, providing students with many opportunities after graduating.
Many people say accounting is the language of business, and I think that's an important concept to keep in mind. You may be thinking about majoring in accounting, but then you may also think, well, I don't know if I want to do accounting for the rest of my life. I think the critical thing to keep in mind is that accounting serves as a really good baseline for lots of different careers.
You don't really need to be good at math, just as long as you can work hard. You've got to learn all the rules, but once you get past that point, it's smooth. So with accounting, you can still work in any industry you want. You get a general understanding of how the business works, and then you can easily transition over and work there as a controller, as a CFO. It depends on whatever you want to do.
The vast majority of our students are aiming to get a master's degree. We have a 3-2 program, which is a combined bachelor's and masters. That's a five-year program, basically.
The faculty and staff here are great. They teach really well, and I think that's why our CPA exam scores are so high.
That's a professional exam that our program does a very good job of preparing students for. In fact, most recent data, we're number three in the country on the pass rate. We have 100% placement out of our program.
Companies that are coming to recruit here are practically knocking down our doors trying to find students, because they want them so bad. So you're going to have a great experience. You're going to work hard. You're going to land on your feet and have a lot of opportunities once you graduate.
