Accounting, B.S.

Experience Accounting at Immaculata University.

With a Bachelor of Science in accounting from Immaculata, you will be able to do more than measure, communicate, and interpret financial data. According to the International Federation of Accountants, the accounting profession will face three major changes in the near future: evolving smart and digital technology, continued globalization of reporting/disclosure standards, and new forms of regulation. Will you be prepared?

Developing a strong foundation in the liberal arts, our graduates will be leading the charge for new accounting regulations, solving global issues and using technology to benefit the industry. In addition, our graduates are prepared to pursue advanced study in graduate programs, such as Immaculata’s online MBA. By carefully planning your courses with your advisor, you can complete the optional 150-credit track, which meets the number of credits required to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

"There are a lot of opportunities at IU. Professors are so welcoming. There’s room for talking to your professors and clarifying things. The one-on-one connection is everything. I really wanted to work at one of the 'big four' accounting and auditing firms. My professor linked me up to an IU alumnus at one of those firms, Deloitte, who passed my resume along and got me through the first step. I had already given my resume to another alumna, who helped me get my first internship at Global Tax Management. I strongly believe that having multiple internships really helped my chances with Deloitte. After my internship with Deloitte, they extended a full-time offer."
