BBA - Accounting Processes

Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting Processes

The Accounting Processes (ACP) major is designed to provide a basic business education, a basic exposure to taxation, and a thorough exposure to the preparation of financial statements. The ACP major prepares students for a non-management accounting position in corporate, small business, or non-public accounting. This program is not designed to optimally prepare students for the professional accounting examinations.

Students must complete 15 semester credit hours of the 45 semester credit hours taken in residence at Walsh College in Accounting and Tax. For complete BBA.ACP graduation requirements, refer to page 22 of our online catalog.

CPA Requirements
Under a new public law in Michigan passed in 2010, persons wishing to be designated as certified public accountants (CPAs) no longer have to have one year (2000 hours) of experience working at a certified public accounting firm. This is good news if you wish to develop a career path which includes becoming a CPA but not limited to working at a CPA firm. For more information, visit www.walshcollege.edu/cpa.
