Accounting at EKU
The BBA in Accounting program at EKU is nationally accredited and is designed to provide students with the solid educational foundation that employers expect of today’s graduates.
This foundation not only includes the technical accounting knowledge necessary to successfully pass the various professional examinations, but also includes a strong general business background that allows accounting professionals to move quickly into upper management positions or become business entrepreneurs themselves.
The BBA in Accounting can be completed while taking courses only at night.
Students with a college degree in a field other than Accounting who want to take courses to meet the requirements to sit for the CPA Exam can enroll in the Certificate in Accounting program which can be completed in as little as two years while taking classes only at night.
Practice what you learn
EKU has the largest Co-operative Education program in the state.
EKU's Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) service-learning project gives you the opportunity for hands on experience. A recent VITA student volunteer said: "While working the VITA sessions I was very happy with the experience and knowledge I gained. Actually preparing a real tax return taught me more than any book or handout could." Another recent VITA participant remarked that she gained confidence because she was able to complete a real tax return. "It was good hands-on experience for my future career as an accountant."
