Experience that speaks any employer’s language.
Landing your first accounting job can be easier when you already have experience that employers want. As an accounting student at Susquehanna, you’ll gain the skills, hands-on experience and knowledge to excel in whatever industry you’d like. Our grads have a high rate of success landing jobs from Big 4 accounting firms to boutique firms and other financial institutions.
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 curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts, you’ll develop essential skills that the most sought-after accountants excel at — writing, teamwork, presentations, critical thinking, interpersonal relationships and leadership.
Earning the Certified Public Accountant accreditation is the gold standard in accounting, and Susquehanna’s program is designed to help you get your CPA quickly and efficiently. Nearly all our accounting majors earn the necessary 150 credit hours to sit for the CPA exam in just four years. This saves you a year of college costs, as well as having the opportunity to earn a salary a year sooner. It’s a double net gain for you.
Additionally, our business school guarantees, but does not require, international internship placements. This means that you can increase your opportunities to develop cross-cultural competencies and international business skills, enabling you to thrive in an interconnected and dynamic global economy.
