Welcome to the
UCM’s Accountancy Program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business [AACSB]. There are approximately 715 business schools in 48 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. However, less than 200 institutions world-wide have earned the specialized AACSB Accreditation designation for their accounting programs.
UCM has also been selected by The Princeton Review as one of the 159 best schools in the Midwest. These designations earned by UCM and the Accountancy Program schools provide evidence of the high quality of the accounting program at Central.
Accountancy Prepares You for a Rewarding Career
Students graduating with an accounting degree enjoy strong job prospects as they possess the strong technical skills demanded by employers. Accounting is rated among the top-ten critical need profession in the U.S.. This demand for accountants leads to starting salaries that are higher than other areas in business and internship and entry-level job opportunities are numerous. An accounting degree provides versatility with respect to career options. Our program enjoys a placement rate of 94% with graduates accepting jobs in public accounting (Big 4 firms, regional firms, and local firms), Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, not-for-profit firms, private companies, health care agencies, and universities. An accounting degree also provides a strong undergraduate preparation for those interested in earning a law degree.
