150-credit-hour undergraduate degree program, fulfilling the credits normally earned in a separate master’s degree
Get the “whole package” of CPA educational requirements—right here in our undergraduate program.
Some Gabelli School students know early in their college careers that licensure as a Certified Public Accountant is in their future. This five-year undergraduate program is ideal for those students: By the time five years are up, they have all of the 150 educational credit hours that New York State requires of individuals who seek CPA licensure.
Many students who pursue the public accountancy major hold internships and, later, full-time jobs at Big Four client-services firms and other notable companies in New York City, such as RSM and BDO. The self-contained nature of this unique five-year undergraduate degree ensures that they do not need a master’s degree to meet New York’s CPA minimum.
As with our four-year, 120-credit public accounting degree , the five-year public accountancy program lives at the Gabelli School’s Rose Hill campus. This is why Rose Hill is the choice of Fordham students who envision an accounting major and career.
