The program not only provides students with additional credit hours needed to meet the 150-credit-hour educational requirement for CPA licensure in most states, it also exposes students to common accounting problems they could see on the CPA exam in the future, by integrating known exam questions into classwork. The program culminates with a capstone course that requires students to apply what they’ve learned in the program to real-world situations.¬†
