The Midwest's accounting education leader.
In the world of accounting, becoming a certified public accountant is crucial to gain entry-level positions and to kick-start your career. Becoming a CPA is a main focus of ours with all of our students. The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy requires that students finish the three E’s to become a CPA — education, examination and experience.
At UNI Business, you can gain all three of those E’s right inside our walls. Our education is top-notch, as we give students the tools to succeed in all types of accounting, whether it be in the public, corporate or government spheres. You can gain experience through the department’s training and practical experience opportunities, such as the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which gives seniors or master-level students a chance to help low-income U.S. citizens with state and federal taxes.
Our examination record speaks for itself. UNI Business students’ CPA examination pass rate consistently ranks among the best in the nation — far above the national average — thanks to our curriculum that consistently changes to challenge students. UNI Business also offers review sessions specifically catered to the CPA exam.
For higher-level professional expertise, we also offer the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree, which allows students to continuously hone the skill of accounting. With this degree, students’ success rate on the CPA exam rises even higher.
