Fabulous with figures?

That’s a great start, but you’ll need a few more skills if you want to become an accountant.

Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is one of several certifications you can earn depending on what area of accounting you want to specialize in.

Financial planner or financial analyst? Fraud analyst or bank auditor?  Internal auditor or tax examiner?

Count on our program to prepare you for whatever specialization you choose.
