Bradley’s combined 3:2 accounting program prepares you to sit for the CPA exam in five years or less through one of the nation’s top-50 accounting programs.
The five-year accounting program gives you the required academic background to take the CPA exam while giving you a graduate degree that often is required for management opportunities. You will focus on undergraduate courses during the first three years, then shift to a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses during the final two years. This gives you more flexibility in scheduling your courses. Beyond the classroom, you can explore career opportunities and meet professionals through the Bradley Accounting Club and award-winning Beta Alpha Psi accounting honor society. Additionally, nearly all students complete internships. Bradley’s business programs are accredited by the AACSB, which places them among the world’s top 2 percent of business programs. Also, Businessweek ranks Bradley’s business programs among the top 50 in the U.S.
Bradley’s accounting program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce. Bradley graduates exceed the CPA exam’s national pass rate, and that routinely leads to job offers before graduation. In recent years, nearly all graduates found jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working for companies such as Deloitte, John Deere, PricewaterhouseCoopers, RSM, State Farm and United Airlines.
