Miami University’s Accountancy programs equip students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to become high integrity, adaptive leaders. Students gain not only accountancy expertise, but also the critical thinking, communications, and data analysis skills they need to succeed in increasingly dynamic environments and to meaningfully contribute to the global community. Our graduates go on to a wide range of careers in a variety of industries. The Department of Accountancy has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) since 1984.

Combined Degree Option

Many states allow students to take the Uniform CPA Exam with 120 hours of education, and almost all states require 150 hours of education to become a licensed CPA. The latter requires additional education beyond the requirements for a bachelor’s degree from Miami.

We offer students the option to complete a four-year combined degree program in which they can earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in accountancy (for a total of 150 hours) within four years.

Special Curriculum Requirements

Students must earn at least a cumulative 2.00 GPA in all accountancy courses attempted at Miami. Students must also complete at least four required junior or senior-level accountancy courses at Miami.
