CPA Track

 

UNI is nationally known as a top institution for CPA professionals due to the professional-level exam preparation that is tied into the curriculum. If you plan to practice as a CPA you’ll be responsible for completing a predetermined amount of semester hours. Iowa and most states require 150 credit hours to become a CPA. Typical CPA career track courses include:

  • Principles of Financial Accounting

  • Intermediate Accounting I

  • Intermediate Accounting II

  • Accounting Information Systems

  • Income Tax

  • Auditing

  • Advanced Accounting

  • Government and Not-for-Profit Accounting

CPA Track - Master of Accounting (MAcc)

Many accounting majors pursuing 150 hours do so by earning their Masters of Accounting degree (MAcc). The program is designed to enhance your applied accounting research and communication skills, problem-solving capability and other skills required to be a successful professional accountant or financial leader. Completion of this program satisfies Iowa and many other states’ 150-hour requirement for CPA certification.

Earning a master’s degree significantly enhances prospects for long-term success and promotion in the accounting profession. If you have a cumulative GPA of over 3.0 and have performed well in upper-level accounting courses, consider applying to the MAcc program.
