Department of Accounting
About the Department
The accounting department includes 10 faculty, all of whom have doctoral degrees and eight of whom are professionally certified. Collectively, they possess diverse work experience in public and private accounting with major companies and small businesses, government agencies and not-for-profit organizations.
- The program is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
- The College of Business has two student computer labs with Windows-based microcomputer applications dedicated to serving business students. Both labs provide stand-alone software, network software and direct access to the Harvey A. Andruss Library, e-mail and the Internet. Students also have complete access to all campus computer facilities via the campus network from residence halls and labs throughout the campus.
- The department has enjoyed a nearly 100 percent job placement rate for the past 10 years. Many of the world's leading accounting firms, along with many public and private organizations, recruit at Bloomsburg.
Effective January 1, 2012, individuals wishing to become a licensed CPA in the State of Pennsylvania will have to complete 150 hours of post-secondary education at an accredited college or university. Students who complete the undergraduate accounting program at Bloomsburg University may fulfill all CPA educational requirements by staying for an additional twelve months and completing either the Masters of Accounting or MBA graduate program.
Many graduates become certified public accountants (CPAs), join corporations or enroll in graduate school, including the Masters of Accounting program at Bloomsburg University.
