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.
Sage’s Accounting program prepares students for a career as a professional accountant, budget analyst, auditor, fiscal analyst or comptroller in the private or public sectors. When students complete the undergraduate accounting curriculum, they are fully qualified for a professional accounting career.
The accounting curriculum is registered with the Division of Professional Education of the New York State Education Department.
