The BS in Accounting degree is for students who are interested in becoming a professional in accounting, and earning a certified public accountant (CPA) licensure. This degree program prepares students to seek employment in private corporations for various accounting functions, or start their own business, providing auditing and tax services to a wide variety of clients. Many accounting professionals, especially CPAs, are employed by government, mostly in state and federal tax departments.
Students who complete the BS in Accounting program at SUNY Poly can advance to graduate study and earn SUNY Poly’s MS in Accountancy degree in order to fulfill the 150-semester hour education requirement for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) licensure.
