Why Should an Accounting Student Consider your Program?
At Fairfield, we meet you where you are and take you where you want to go. 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.
