Why Should an Accounting Student Consider your Program?
Accounting majors at the University of Saint Joseph are able to complete
all of their required accounting courses as undergraduates, meaning that
they can sit for the Uniform CPA Exam upon completion of their
Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. Students seeking to become CPAs
must also complete a minimum of 30 credits beyond the bachelor's
degree to meet the educational requirements of the Connecticut State
Board of Accountancy to become licensed. This requirement can be met
through earning our Master of Science in Management (MSM) degree
(which can be completed in less than one year.) As a student in good
academic standing, you are guaranteed admission to the MSM program;
graduation application fees are waived and you are not required to take
any graduate entrance exams.
