Many employers are interested in students with an accounting degree. While employment opportunities are extremely varied for accounting students, there are two typical entry-level positions for CPA candidates graduating from our MS Program: tax associate or audit associate with a public accounting firm. We have big four accounting firms recruit on campus as well as several other national, regional and local accounting firms. Additional careers in accounting can be found in every industry and various government agencies. Many employers strongly value an accounting degree and the CPA designation for positions ranging from staff accountant or internal auditor, to brand manager, finance director, or controller.
