A master's degree in accountancy is often considered a vital degree for graduates who wish to work in the accounting profession. A doctoral degree in business administration is offered for those who wish to pursue a more advanced degree. However, students who enroll in these degree programs often pursue jobs in academia as professors and researchers. For graduates who plan to work as accountants, a passing grade on the CPA exam may be required. Prospective accountants must also meet any state requirements before they can begin work.
Each state sets forth standards required to be eligible to take the CPA exam and apply for licensure or certification as a CPA. While this certificate program was designed with consideration for the standards proposed by the National Association of State Boards of Accounting (NASBA), the University of Phoenix cannot, and will not, provide any assurance that completion of this program will allow a successful student to qualify within the student's specific jurisdiction. Potential applicants should check with the appropriate organization within their jurisdiction to determine if this certificate program, combined with their undergraduate degree and any other specific criteria, meets the requirements to qualify for examination in that specific jurisdiction. States frequently change their requirements for examination. There is no assurance that at the time of degree completion the specific jurisdiction's requirements will be consistent with the requirements at the time of admission.
The University's Central Administration is located at 1625 W. Fountainhead Parkway, Tempe, AZ 85282-2371. Online Campus: 3157 E. Elwood St., Phoenix, AZ 85034
