According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for accountants and auditors are increasing greater than the national average. These include positions for business analysts, credit analysts, financial examiners and personal financial analysts in the Greater Philadelphia Region, and across the country.
As the role of accounting has taken on a greater significance, employers increasingly seek graduates with a specific accounting degree and expertise in generally accepted accounting principles and practices, analytical thinking and a core of sound math, communication and technical and leadership skills.
The Accounting Program at Peirce College provides students with coursework focused on the analytical skills; understanding of financial regulations, laws and ethics; and core accounting principles necessary for employment opportunities in the field of accounting. This includes work in all areas of accounting, performing various supervisory, analytical and other challenging functions in both small and large companies. Graduates of the Program are also prepared to sit for the CPA, CIA, CMA and CFE exams or to study at the graduate-degree level in accounting, business and finance.
The NEW Peirce Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting - now accredited by ACBSP - is designed to prepare students for employment as accounting professionals with a variety of corporate, government and/or nonprofit organizations.
