BBA - Accounting Processes

If you desire a career in general accounting or corporate/management accounting rather than public accounting with a CPA designation we offer the Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting Processes.

The degree allows you to enter the accounting profession, providing a firm foundation in accounting while also allowing flexibility to enroll in several non-accounting courses to fulfill degree requirements.  This program is not for students planning on taking the CPA exam, but rather prepares students to sit for the Certified Management Accountant and Certified Financial Manager Examinations.

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.
