Is a certificate in Accounting right for me?

The Accounting Certificate program provides a foundation for students who want to develop their accounting knowledge. This certificate is ideal as a starting point for people who already have a business degree and want to become an accountant. The undergraduate certificate in accounting would complete the Connecticut requirements for the CPA exam for those with a business or finance undergraduate degree. For more information, contact Dr. Karen Cascini.
