Accounting is a premier academic program at Grace College. Grace accounting graduates consistently out-perform their peers on the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Examination. In 2018, Grace was recognized as the most effective and efficient private accounting program in the state. Grace’s exam pass rates consistently and significantly surpass the national average and the average of members of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
The Grace College School of Business prepares graduates for a variety of accounting careers, including financial accounting, managerial or cost accounting, auditing, tax, governmental accounting and nonprofit accounting. The Grace College accounting program enables students to achieve the required 150 credit hours to become a CPA in four years instead of the five years required at many other colleges. For the most motivated students, Grace offers a blended degree option which allows students to earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA in only four years.
The accounting program at Grace is biblically-based, rigorous, and career-focused. Grace College partners with accounting firms, banks, and orthopaedic companies to provide accounting students with meaningful internships. They not only provide outstanding work experience, but they are also all paid internships. In addition, Grace hosts its own Accounting Job Fair each September with many large CPA firms and other businesses that attend to interview students. Grace graduates receive job offers from Big Four accounting firms, large national firms, and smaller local firms as well as positions in corporate, nonprofit and government accounting.
