Bachelors in Accounting and Finance in North America 2017. Bachelor in Accounting Hands On Accounting Many of the accounting students at Marian University choose to take the CPA Exam.Students from any university must accumulate 150 credit hours before they take the exam. Here is the difference at Marian. Our flexible program allows you to choose whether you accumulate the 150 hours over eight, nine, or ten semesters. Most universities tell you that you will spend ten semesters at their university to accumulate the 150 credit hours. You will work with an accounting adviser to develop a plan that allows you to choose eight, nine, or ten semesters to graduate with an accounting degree and be eligible to take the CPA Exam. Another difference is that Marian University offers a full-time accounting internship in which students earn twelve credits. Internships are typically with accounting firms during the spring semester. Why are twelve credits important? The students in our full-time accounting internship program are full-time students for financial aid, insurance, and on campus living requirements. So, our students in the full-time accounting internships do not take any other classes and are able to: 1. Concentrate on this outstanding opportunity to learn from experienced professionals; 2. Travel if their work assignments require; and 3. Work overtime to help their firm deal with the period when the firm faces its highest volume of work. An added advantage for Marian accounting students is that they do not interrupt their living arrangements during the academic year, since many full-time internships exist in the Indianapolis area.

The Becker CPA Exam Review is the largest provider for CPA Exam preparation materials in the world. Accounting students interested in taking the CPA Exam can elect to take the Becker CPA Exam Review in their last Marian semester as a part of their full-time tuition!

Accounting is defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as "the art of recording, classifying, and summarizing in a significant manner and in terms of money, transactions and events which are, in part at least, of financial character, and interpreting the results thereof." Expectations of Accounting Graduates The undergraduate Accounting curriculum develops competence in a broad range of accounting skills and practices.

Accounting students are prepared to enter professional positions in accounting with business, nonprofit, or government organizations. In addition they may continue their education in the Master of Accountancy Program and/or pursue a variety of professional certifications. Careers in Accounting Because virtually all organizations produce and use financial data for decision making, the career possibilities for an accounting major are diverse. Many students launch careers at public accounting firms, seeking their Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license.

Beyond public accounting, students may seek careers with for-profit companies, not-for-profit organizations, and governments. These organizations use internal accountants, internal auditors, financial analysts, IT risk managers, cost accountants, tax specialists, and controllers. Students may also seek careers in compliance, fraud, and forensics with organizations such as the IRS and FBI.
