The accounting major is designed to provide a knowledge base in both financial and managerial accounting. Accounting courses expose the student to a broad perspective of accounting needed for management responsibility within a company, in the field of public accounting, and for studies in a graduate program.
The major provides coursework that helps prepare students for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam and the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.
Indiana and most states require individuals to have completed a minimum of 150 hours of college credit to be eligible to take the CPA exam. Accounting majors who plan to enter the public accounting field are strongly encouraged to complete at least 150 hours before they complete their college education. Resources are available to make it possible for students to design their 150 plan and to complete it in eight or nine semesters (with some summer school). Click to learn more.
Anderson University has an educational partnership with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
