Career Opportunities

Graduates with an Accounting degree from SUNY Old Westbury will competitively qualify for positions in public accounting, private accounting, government and not-for-profit organizations. While the College offers a B.S. degree in accounting, a student who wishes to be licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in New York State must now meet a more extensive education requirement. This generally requires completion of a 150-credit hour program of study.  Students who complete both their B.S. degree in Accounting and either their M.S. degree in Accounting or M.S. degree in Taxation at Old Westbury will satisfy this requirement.   The national CPA exam provides an objective evaluation of the preparation level of students for public accounting.
