The accounting degree is designed to provide all the necessary coursework to prepare accounting majors for professional exams, including the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exams.
Accounting majors work in a variety of fields after graduation, including positions as auditors, financial analysts, controllers and accounting managers. Students choosing to extend their accounting degree further go into graduate programs, such as Mount Mercy’s Master of Business Administration program.
Mount Mercy also offers an accounting minor. The accounting minor is a great complement to business-related majors such as management or finance.
