Accounting

The world of business continues to change and become more complicated with advances in technology, globalization and new regulations. Accountants help manage and keep pace with changing trends. Accountants help corporations and organizations interpret information, make investment decisions, and much, much more. Without accountants, it would be hard for businesses to survive. Western International University (West) has bachelor and master level programs in accounting that can help you gain the knowledge you need to pursue a career in this field, as well as prepare you to sit for professional certification exams. 

West offers the following accounting degree programs:

Bachelor of Science in Accounting

Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Accounting

Master of Science (MS) in Accounting

Accounting (Master of Business Administration)

Business professionals need a broad range of skills for advanced managerial positions while also demonstrating expertise in specialized roles. This MBA program with an accounting concentration offers accounting professionals the opportunity to develop and practice advanced management and decision-making skills while focusing on in-depth topics and current developments in the accounting profession. Although students in the program would greatly benefit from having an undergraduate degree in a business discipline, it is not required.

Each state sets forth standards required to be eligible to take the CPA exam and apply for licensure or certification as a CPA. The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) certification requires membership in the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) as well as education, work experience, and examination requirements. While the programs at West are designed with consideration for the standards proposed by the National Association of State Boards of Accounting (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the IMA, West cannot assure that successful graduates will meet their states’ or IMA’s specific eligibility requirements to take the CPA or CMA exams or apply for licensure or certification as a CPA or CMA. Applicants should check with their appropriate state organization and/or the IMA to determine if the West program, combined with their undergraduate degree, work experience, and any other specific criteria, meets examination and licensing eligibility requirements for the CPA and/or CMA designations. State and/or IMA requirements may vary from the time of admission to program completion. There is no assurance at the time of program completion that the specific jurisdiction’s requirements will be consistent with the requirements at the time of admission.
