About

Why study the Accountancy program from John Carroll University

In your world, accountants will elevate value creation beyond financial performance to measure environmental impacts and risks, and community empowerment, shifting shareholder returns to broad stakeholder equity.

In the past, people assumed that accountants played mainly reactionary and reporting roles as financial historians and tax return preparers. Like everything, the role of the accountant is changing.

What You Will Do

Most Boler graduates become Certified Public Accountants and serve within public accounting firms, public and private corporations, and government bodies and municipalities. Over the past decade, Boler accountancy graduates have been among the nation’s top performers on CPA exam pass rates. Boler is proud of its near 100% job placement for all Accountancy graduates.

The largest and most well-known firms (Big Four Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, KPMG) comprise the four largest professional services networks in the world, offering audit, assurance services, taxation, management consulting, advisory, actuarial, corporate finance and legal services. The Big Four handle most audits for public companies as well as many private companies. This group was once known as the "Big Eight", and was reduced to the "Big Six" and then "Big Five" by a series of mergers. The Big Five became the Big Four after the fall of Arthur Andersen in 2002, following its involvement in the Enron scandal.

Job Outlook 

Hiring rates for new accountants remain strong, especially at the graduate degree level. A long track record of success — on the job, on the CPA Exam and as senior managers — means that Boler graduates attract strong interest and very good initial job offers.
