  • Program Overview

    As an accounting major, you'll complete rigorous courses in general business and accounting to prepare you to take the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam.

    Few undergraduate programs of study lead to the professional status and job security that the growing fields of accounting and accounting information systems enjoy today. Endicott’s accounting program is designed to position you on the cutting edge of this enduring and rewarding profession.

    The program includes academic study and internships in critical areas of accounting, including financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and management accounting. At the same time, you will gain an understanding of the contemporary context in which accounting operates, through study in general business topics, including business communication and quantitative methods in business, information systems, finance, business organizations, business law, and professional ethics.
