Accounting Certificate Program

Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. There are approximately 1,400 American institutions with degree programs in business, but only 10 percent – including Hofstra – have earned this organization’s prestigious accounting accreditation, the highest standard of achievement in business schools worldwide. If you have a bachelor’s degree in any major, you can retrain as an accountant in our one-year, 18-credit Accounting Certificate Program (ACP). Upon graduation, you’ll be eligible for a position as an accountant, or you can use these courses toward fulfilling prerequisites for Hofstra University’s M.B.A. program and/or for meeting some of the state requirements for taking the CPA exam. This fast-track program is also extremely useful if you want to add significant accounting knowledge to jumpstart or redirect your career.
