Whether you are interested in a career with a big firm, a small firm or you want to start your own business, our accounting program will help you achieve your goals. We offer a B.S. in Accounting and an MBA with an accounting specialization.
Our program will familiarize you with many kinds of accounting careers--auditing, taxes, consulting, managerial, government, not-for-profit, information systems and forensic accounting. Many of our accounting graduates pursue the Certified Public Accounting examination right after graduating and leverage that to obtain positions in large and small firms in public accounting. Other graduates find positions with large corporations, government agencies and not-for-profit organizations.
Through Rowan’s mentorship program, you will have the opportunity to work directly with an accounting professional as early as your freshman year. Through internships you can gain hands-on experience while you earn credit. Some internships lead to full-time positions upon graduation. While an undergraduate, you may also gain tax preparation experience through the federally sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, which offers free tax help to low income and disabled tax payers.
Our graduates have found positions at organizations such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, EY, Deloitte LLP, KPMG, ParenteBeard LLC, BDO, Defense Contract Audit Agency, State of New Jersey Division of Taxation and Comcast.
