Save time and money and make a difference in your organization! If you want to become a CPA (certified public accountant), then pursuing the Mount’s 5-year Accounting / MBA program just makes sense.

Why pick the 5-year Accounting BS / MBA track?

The question really is, why not? Through this program, you can:

  • Get both degrees completed faster
  • Save money
  • Continue learning from the same professors you already know and love

Participating in this track also prepares students for the CPA exam, as you’ll be trained in the fundamentals of accounting and business that fulfill the academic requirements for CPA licensing in New York. 

As with students pursuing the traditional Accounting major, 5-year Accounting BS / MBA students at the Mount benefit by learning from seasoned accountants-turned-professors, enjoy small class sizes, and have the same opportunities for real world experience through internships and the TaxAide program.

Plus, the Mount’s Accounting and Business programs are accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE). Learn more about our accreditation here.

"Getting both degrees from the same institution allows you to have a rapport with your professors – instead of going into grad school having to adjust to new teaching styles, you already know half of the professors and their specific teaching style. I am proud to be graduating with two degrees from the Mount’s School of Business."
