About

Courses offered by the Accounting Department are designed to expose students to a wide range of issues related to analyzing and interpreting financial information. Emphasis is also placed on the use of accounting information both within the organization for managerial decision-making and outside the organization for investment decision-making. The Accounting Department also offers opportunities for experiential learning through both summer and winter internships, which are highly compensated.

Career Opportunities

The Accounting curriculum covers all the traditional educational experience areas necessary for entry into the accounting profession:

  • Financial Accounting – Study of accounting issues as they relate to published financial statements.
  • Managerial Accounting – Study of the techniques for decision-making using accounting information
  • Taxes and Assurance Services – Many of our accounting graduates embark on careers in the field of Public Accounting, specializing in either taxes or assurance services which allows them to obtain the experience necessary to qualify as a CPA after completion of the CPA examination. All Big 4 public accounting firms and all regional and local public accounting firms view UConn as a primary accounting recruiting school.

Students majoring in accounting may choose a curriculum that prepares them for professional examinations which are part of the certification procedures that lead to designation as a Certified Public Account (CPA) or Certified Management Accountant (CMA). Students preparing for the CPA examination should also apply for the Master of Science in Accounting program.
