Accounting (B.S.)

Return to: List of Academic Programs

Accounting is an essential function in any well-managed organization. From small non-profit organizations to government agencies and large multinational corporations, managing and accounting for financial resources requires professionals with a solid foundation in accounting principles. This degree prepares a student for a career as a professional accountant, budget analyst, auditor, fiscal analyst or comptroller in the private or public sectors

The Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in Sage After Work is a completer program. Students who enter this program have already done some college-level work, typically 45-60 credits, and are prepared to pursue a Bachelor’s degree. Required introductory level courses will normally have been completed and transferred from a previous school. When that is not the case, a Sage academic advisor will describe alternatives for completing these courses.

When students complete the undergraduate accounting curriculum, they are fully qualified for a professional accounting career. Recent changes to the Certified Public Accountant National Exam now require a total of 150 credit hours of study prior to the exam. Students may pursue the additional 30 credit hours by completing a Sage graduate degree (MS or MBA) or through additional undergraduate courses. The accounting curriculum is registered with the Division of Professional Education of the New York State Education Department.

Major Requirements: 60 Credits


*These introductory courses are normally offered only in the Summer.
