Undergraduate Studies

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 and take the Certified Public Accounting exam.

Why study accounting?

Gain hands-on experience by completing an internship that connects your course material with the business world. Our students have recently completed internships at Ernst and Young, XL Insurance, and the Chester County Chamber of Commerce and Business.

In addition, you can participate in the Business Club, which tours companies to learn about business operations. You can also gain real-world knowledge from successful business professionals who serve as guest presenters.

Where Can I Work?

As a graduate with a degree in accounting, you can explore careers at major corporations, government agencies and not-for-profit organizations, to name a few. Our alumni have worked for many companies, including all the “Big Four” accounting and auditing firms: Deloitte, EY, PwC and KPMG.

In addition, an accounting degree prepares you for graduate work in a number of fields or for further training as a certified public accountant (CPA), certified managerial accountant (CMA), certified financial planner (CFP), a chartered financial consultant (ChFC), or a chartered financial analyst (CFA).

The teachers in the Accounting/Business Department were invested in not only my academic performance, but supported me being an athlete on the men’s lacrosse team for four years, and supported me in internship searches, resume building, and networking. Many of these teachers made it their responsibility to educate and prepare all students for a successful and happy life after graduation. Many of my accounting and business professors had careers before teaching—the real-world examples they incorporate into class have been critical in my learning.
