Overview

For those students pursuing the Bachelor of Science degree, the program is designed to provide the graduate with the necessary concepts relating to the various disciplines that comprise the body of knowledge of accounting, specifically the areas of financial accounting, cost accounting, auditing, and taxation.

The programme

Those students who are planning to take the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination may do so with the Bachelor of Science degree. Those students who are planning to take the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination in Florida must take an additional 30 semester credits of course work beyond the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree to qualify to sit for the CPA examination under the State of Florida CPA Law. Webber International University currently offers an MBA with an option in accounting to meet these requirements. Specifically, the student must complete the following credits (at a minimum) in order to sit for the CPA examination:

36 semester credits in accounting beyond elementary accounting courses, including at least:

  • 12 credits in financial and cost accounting; 6 credits in auditing; and 6 credits in taxation.
  • 39 semester credits in general business courses, including at least 6 credits of business law; and 18 credits in courses at the junior (300) level or higher.

Because of these increased educational requirements, no experience or additional work is required for certification.
