Details

The online BA in Business with a concentration in Corporate Accounting, offered through W. P. Carey School of Business, provides students an avenue to extend their careers' from the more traditional perspective of "crunching numbers" for someone else to analyzing potential decisions and courses of action from a financial perspective.

Instead of answering, "How much would it cost to expand our business into California?" the question would be, "Financially, does it make sense to expand our business into California?" This latter question is much more a manager, leader oriented question compared to the traditional "How much does it cost" type question and typically requires management accountants to function within a team of experts (e.g. with marketing, regulatory, production team members, etc.) Clearly, the opportunities for management accountants acting more as managers and leaders within an organization are increasing exponentially, with both salaries and opportunities rising above other career options.

Certifications

The online BA in Corporate Accounting provides students with the domain knowledge needed to lead, from a financial perspective, within an organization. To do so, the online BA in Corporate Accounting is designed to help students prepare for certification. Both the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) which is popular in the U.S.A., and the more recent CGMA (Chartered Global Management Accountant) sponsored by the AICPA, are within reach. Although the credit hours earned in the BA in Corporate Accounting program will generally help students become eligible for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam, the curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in corporate accounting, and not public accounting, for which the CMA and CGMA certifications may be more relevant.

This program is not available to students with BA, BS or MS degrees in accountancy, and the courses are not available to non-degree students.
