The Accounting program from Stetson University will prepare you for a multitude of careers as an accounting, financial or management professional who can serve a variety of organizations including public accounting and consulting firms, public and private corporations, government entities and not-for-profit organizations.
Successful accountants must be knowledgeable within their field. As a student, you will gain a strong understanding of accounting, taxation, information systems and business. In addition, you will develop skills that are critical to your future – problem-solving, oral and written communication, and critical thinking. Students who are self-motivated, organized, detail-oriented, logical and able to multi-task are particularly well-suited to accounting.
Graduates of our accounting program are expected to continue to be in high demand by employers at attractive salaries.
Accounting jobs are expected to increase by 22 percent from 2008 to 2018 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). With an undergraduate degree in accounting, employment opportunities exist in accounting and related fields with corporations, consulting firms, governments and not-for-profit entities.
Many employers hire accounting majors for positions in finance and management.
Some of our graduates also choose to pursue a master of accountancy or a master of business administration or law degree. As an accounting major, you will be provided with a solid foundation for law school, particularly for students who are interested in tax, business or securities law.
Our accounting program has a history of outstanding student performance on the Uniform CPA examination.
Graduates who complete 150 hours of coursework and qualify for CPA licensure - often by completing our master of accountancy program - typically accept employment with a local, regional, national or international CPA firm primarily in the audit/assurance or tax areas. They have also accepted positions with publicly-held companies and government entities like the Internal Revenue Service. Through the University Office of Career and Professional Development, we continue to host recruiting visits from some of the Big 4 firms and strong regional CPA firms, corporations and government agencies.
Historically, the Institute's domestic students have achieved 100 percent placement within three months of graduation.
