Upon graduation, accounting majors typically pursue professional certifications. In addition to the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Managerial Accountant (CMA) certifications, accountants also may become Certified Internal Auditors (CIA) or Internal Revenue Service Enrolled Agents. All professional certifications require individuals to pass a national examination and complete several years of professional practice.
Most states require that individuals who wish to obtain the CPA license must complete 150 hours of college credit. Some of those states require the 150 hours be completed prior to sitting for the CPA examination.
UW-Platteville graduates majoring in accounting have several attractive options for meeting the 150-credit-hour requirement.
- Earning a business administration degree (double major) in another area complementary to accounting, such as forensic accounting, finance, supply chain, or management before graduation.
- Participating in the Bachelors to Masters plan wherein a student may complete up to 6 credits of graduate work as an undergraduate.
- Completing a Master of Science degree in one of three online master’s programs offered by the School after graduation on a part- or full-time basis.
- Working one-on-one with an accounting faculty member to devise a plan specifically tailored to a particular student’s interests.
