The accounting profession provides a wide range of opportunities
for our graduates. While many graduates of the School of Professional
Accountancy opt for positions with the biggest international accounting
firms, many choose initial career paths with smaller firms, corporations,
and government. The School of Professional Accountancy works closely
with employers and C.W. Post's Professional Experience and Career
Planning (PEP) office to provide students with permanent and part-time
job opportunities. In addition, the Accounting Society and our
Kappa Omicron Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi bring together practicing
accounting professionals and accounting majors through formal
and informal events throughout the year.
The School of Professional Accountancy is constantly improving
its programs to provide the highest quality education to students.
The faculty has an unbeatable combination of experience and professional
and academic credentials. The undergraduate and graduate programs
reflect the latest topics and incorporate current technology.
Undergraduate majors use laptop computers in all accounting classes
beyond accounting principles. The B.S. in Accountancy follows
the New York CPA educational guidelines for CPA licensure through

in Accountancy (an integrated 153-credit program) are registered
with the New York State Education Department as 150-hour CPA licensure-qualifying
