What will I learn?

The School of Accounting at FIU educates students to achieve great success in today’s accounting industry. The program provides the most current knowledge and emphasizes the skills needed for success in public, private and government sectors-and to pursue an advanced degree. The Bachelor of Accounting program curriculum includes comprehensive technical competencies, as well as important professional capabilities, including verbal and written business communication skills.

For public accounting, you'll also need to pass the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination, which in Florida requires 30 credit hours beyond the Bachelor of Accounting degree.

LEARNING GOALS

The Florida Board of Governors has mandated that public universities in Florida develop and annually assess Academic Learning Compacts for each Undergraduate degree program. Academic Learning Compacts identify the skills you should acquire provided you follow your major's prescribed course of study. These skills, known collectively as Student Learning Outcomes, describe the core competencies and learning expectations you are expected to display and the College is required to assess for each major.
