Accounting is an essential function in any well-managed organization. From small non-profit organizations to government agencies and large multinational corporations, managing and accounting for financial resources requires professionals with a solid foundation in accounting principles. This degree prepares a student for a career as a professional accountant, budget analyst, auditor, fiscal analyst or comptroller in the private or public sectors.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in Sage After Work is a completer program. Students who enter this program have already done some college-level work, typically 45-60 credits, and are prepared to pursue a Bachelors degree. Required introductory level courses will normally have been completed and transferred from a previous school. When that is not the case, a Sage academic advisor will describe alternatives for completing these courses.
When students complete the undergraduate accounting curriculum, they are fully qualified for a professional accounting career. Recent changes to the Certified Public Accountant National Exam now require a total of 150 credit hours of study prior to the exam. Students may pursue the additional 30 credit hours by completing a Sage graduate degree (MS or MBA) or through additional undergraduate course. The accounting curriculum is registered with the Division of Professional Education of the New York State Education Department.
