Accounting - 120, BBA Major in

This program qualifies students for general accounting careers in business but does not fully satisfy the educational requirements for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in New York State.  New York and most other states require 150 semester hours of coursework for licensure as a CPA.  Students intending to pursue careers in public accounting are advised to consider one of the three options offered through our BBA Major in Accounting (Licensure) program.  Please see the program’s bulletin page for more information about the Accounting - 150, BBA Major in  (Licensure) track.
