Online accounting degree fills gap for students
April 24, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – A new accounting program aims to serve students through accessible, high-quality online courses. Starting this summer, the College of Business at EOU will offer an online bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Business majors have long had the option to select an accounting concentration, but the upgrade to a full accounting degree better prepares students for CPA licensure exams.
“Making the concentration a major is more transparent to employers, and clearly represents the rigorous nature of the program,” accounting professor Ashley Walker said.
The program is designed to meet government standards, and pair easily with EOU’s online MBA program to provide the required number of credits for CPA eligibility.
“It makes a difference for working adults who need an accounting degree to move up in their careers,” Walker said.
Non-traditional students looking to change occupations or move into higher paying jobs benefit from the flexibility of this new skill-centric online degree program.
