This certificate program in Advanced Accounting is designed for those individuals who already possess an understanding of accounting principles and would like to prepare for an accounting-related career such as auditing, financial analysis, taxation, budgeting and control, cost accounting, or asset management.

This program can be paired with additional coursework to meet the minimum CPA educational requirements for those possessing an approved bachelor's degree and meeting all other CPA exam requirements. In addition, the certificate provides non-accounting managers with a solid foundation in accounting practices relative to new legislation that requires executives to be responsible for the financial statements and internal controls of their organizations.
