Graduate One Year Faster

Nearly all of our accounting majors earn the necessary 150 credit hours to sit for the CPA exam in just four years. That means you can earn a five-year degree in less time than other accounting programs, saving a year of college costs as well as having the opportunity to earn a salary a year sooner. For you, it’s a double net gain.

Real World Skills

As an accounting student, you’ll get the skills, hands-on experience and knowledge to excel in whatever industry you’d like. We have a high rate of success in preparing accounting majors to land jobs before or shortly after graduation. Understanding accounting rules and regulations is just one factor for career success. Today’s accountants analyze data to provide meaningful insights to help clients and businesses prepare for their futures.

Because our bold curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts, you’ll develop essential skills that most sought-after accountants excel at

  • writing
  • teamwork
  • presentations
  • critical thinking
  • interpersonal relationships
  • leadership

You’ll also gain real-world experience and connections through internships and networking.

World-Class Accredited Degree Opens Doors

Our Sigmund Weis School of Business is accredited by AACSB International. Less than 5% of the 15,000+ business programs worldwide have earned AACSB accreditation, making our program part of an elite group. For you, it means top companies will recognize the high quality of your degree, often offering higher, more competitive salaries.

The powerful combination of our AACSB-accredited program and global experiences prepare you to become an accounting professional for corporations, nonprofits or the government.

We have a 100% job placement rate with approximately one third of our accounting students even having job offers — from Big Four accounting firms in major cities to nonprofits to boutique accounting firms — before they begin their senior year.

Minor Options

In addition to a major in accounting, the Department of Accounting offers minors. Non-business students can boost their resumes with a minor in accounting, while business students can open up new career options with a minor in professional accounting.


Accounting At Susquehanna

Exceptional value with the added bonus of being at a liberal arts curriculum. 


Boards of accountancy in all U.S. states and territories now require 150 hours of college credit to become a CPA.

At most schools, you need five years and a master’s degree to fulfill the 150 hours required. But our innovative accounting program lets you save a year of tuition and start your career sooner.

Many students return from their summer internship between junior and senior year with an offer from a Big-4 or large regional public accounting firm in hand. Most are typically placed by the end of fall semester their senior year.
