Because all full-time accounting faculty members are not only academically qualified, but also professionally (CPA) certified, you can expect guidance from folks who have “been there and done that.” Want to take the CPA Exam in another state? No problem. We will help you ensure you have all the right credits to do so. Want to work outside Connecticut? No problem. Fairfield is a “key recruiting school” for the Big 4 and other well-respected accounting firms. Students are routinely placed in positions outside Connecticut, mainly with the Big 4. Have a unique educational background? No problem there, either. Fairfield students receive individualized advisement to help them meet their professional goals. Want to complete (at least some of) the CPA Exam before you go to work? Consider our MSA program – since the program’s structure supports students in their efforts to pass the exam in tandem with their graduate studies. 59
