Why Choose Accounting at SU?

Our accounting program reflects the highest standards of accounting education. Our program is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, one of just 182 programs globally to earn this honor. Similarly, our school is one of fewer than 5 percent in the world to earn overall AACSB business accreditation.

Unlike many other programs, the required coursework at SU also satisfies all of the requirements to sit for the Uniform CPA examination in Maryland.

What sets our accounting program apart? The invaluable professional know-how you’ll gain as an undergraduate. In our Applied Business Learning Experience program, you could participate in a paid internship at a:

  • public accounting firm
  • private corporation
  • government agency

As part of the program, you will also complete a Capstone internship performing accounting work for organizations that otherwise might be unable to afford such services.

In many instances, students receive employment offers after graduation from the places where they interned. So, apply today – we’ll help make your future success one for the books!


Thanks to our rigorous program, our accounting students graduate with skills that are always in strong demand by businesses and government agencies.
