Overview | Quality Matters Information | Careers | Transfer

The Accounting major provides students with a solid educational foundation for entry into professional careers in accounting-related areas of business and government. The program prepares students to pursue advanced education in accounting and related fields.

Florida Atlantic University’s AACSB-accredited College of Business offers the 3rd and 4th year of upper-division (3/4000 numbered) business courses in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program as fully online for the Accounting major (OACG). The Accounting major is designed to begin with ACG 3131 (Intermediate Accounting Theory 1) and ACG3341 (Cost Accounting). Students desiring to register for ACG 3131 and ACG 3341 must first pass the School of Accounting Competency Exam.

 

The Master of Accounting and Master of Taxation programs help fulfill the educational requirements to sit for the CPA examination in the state of Florida and many of the states that have adopted the AICPA’s 150 credit-hour requirement. Students are encouraged to check with the state board of accountancy in the state in which they plan to practice regarding specific course requirements.
