Our goal is to provide you with an affordable, well-rounded education that will allow graduates to choose from multiple accounting career options in public accounting, government, industry, and nonprofit organizations. We strive to make our program work for you, and we offer one of the largest and most qualified accounting facilities in western Pennsylvania. Accounting is a challenging discipline that will provide students with employable skills that can be applied in a variety of career opportunities.
