Students planning to become Certified Public Accountants should go to the New York State Office of the Professions web site at for information relevant to certified public accounting. In addition to the combined BS/MBA students with undergraduate degrees wishing to qualify for licensure or admission to the CPA exam may complete a separately registered MBA degree program upon completion of certain prerequisites. Students may also pursue a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. The four year program is best suited for students who wish to pursue a career in management accounting, internal audit, private, tax or governmental accounting where 150 hours of education is not a requirement to begin a career.
