The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants dubbed accounting "one degree with 360 degrees of possibilities."
An accounting major opens the door to many different careers. Some of our graduates launch their own accounting firms; others work for the Big Four firms or the government; still others become CFOs or heads of finance at major corporations.
There's no better place to pursue accounting than North Jersey's only school with business and accounting accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
