City University of Seattle’s Undergraduate Certificate is designed specifically for students interested in expanding their career opportunities in the field of accounting. The certificate is ideal if you’re a student with a degree in another area, but career aspirations in accounting. It’s designed to provide the courses needed to enter the job market as an accounting professional, as well as provide a firm foundation for several certification exams. CityU of Seattle’s accounting certificate includes the same courses as our Bachelor of Science in Accounting program, without all of the lower-division and core business classes. You’ll study financial accounting, taxation, cost accounting and audits in depth so you can use your new knowledge at work and on your certification exams.
You can earn your undergraduate accounting certificate online or in a mixed-mode program with some in-class and some online coursework. CityU’s flexible learning environment works well for people who want to tackle work and other responsibilities concurrently. Give our School of Management advisors a call and we can help create a schedule that works for you.
Your undergraduate accounting certificate from CityU will equip you with a whole new financial vernacular that can boost your job prospects in businesses both private and public. In addition to sitting for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exams, many of our graduates go on to fill some of the following roles:
- accounts payable/receivable
- financial analyst
