Cabrini’s accounting program prepares students for careers in accounting, professional examinations and graduate studies. Its internship program enables accounting majors to integrate classroom theory with practical experience. Employment opportunities for accounting majors are available in public accounting, industrial (private) accounting, government, not-for-proﬁt organizations, and education. Accounting is a rewarding profession that requires an undergraduate degree. Opportunities increase for those individuals with experience (i.e., internships), graduate education (i.e., Master of Accounting), and certiﬁcation (i.e., CPA, CMA, CIA, CFE). Cabrini’s accounting program offers undergraduate accounting majors the opportunity to complete two graduate Master of Accounting (MAcc) courses during their senior year. Students electing this option will be able to complete their graduate degree with eight additional courses. All of the business major programs at Cabrini include a common business core which recognizes the ‘enterprise’ nature of today’s business world that integrates the various strategic areas of business.
