The Public Accounting BS/MBA program was the first combined program offered by a state university college to be registered with the State of New York for candidates seeking admission to sit for the CPA examination. Students planning to become Certified Public Accountants should go to the New York State Office of the Professions web site at www.op.nysed.gov/prof/cpa/cpalic.htm 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. This program is further designed for students wishing to sit for the Certified Management Accounting exam. Oswego’s finance program is designed to prepare students for positions in financial institutions such as commercial and investment banks, mutual funds, brokerages and insurance companies, as well as in the finance and accounting departments of manufacturing, retail, and nonprofit businesses. The Risk Management and Insurance program prepares students for careers in insurance or as risk managers.
