Accounting

Is your journey leading you to pursue a career in accounting? We have a program that will push you to be the best accountant you can be. With a track record of graduates that consistently outperform their peers on the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Examination, and exam pass rates that consistently and significantly surpass the national average, you can rest assured that you are in good hands. You will be mentored along the way by professors that have decades of experience and the grace to teach classes that will challenge and stretch you to grow in your competence. In 2018, our Accounting program was recognized as the most effective and efficient private accounting program in the state.

Here at Grace, you can achieve the required 150 credit hours to become a CPA in just four years instead of the five years required at many other colleges. If you’re a high achiever, take advantage of our blended degree option which allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA in only four years.

We don’t stop with classroom preparation. Our program has long-standing partnerships with accounting firms, banks, and orthopaedic companies to provide accounting students with meaningful internships that often include pay. The annual Accounting Job Fair in September is a networking opportunity where large CPA firms and other businesses attend to interview students.  With this degree, your professional options are endless! We’ve seen 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. Regardless of which path you take, one thing rings true of our graduates: they are living lives of purpose.

Students working together

In all of our classes, Prof. Stichter would lead us in meaningful devotions and tie in what it means to add value in your career. I've found that to be true. In your corporate work life, you will have opportunities to impact people. You don’t have to be a doctor saving lives or a missionary sharing the gospel to impact people. The work you do every day can add a lot of value.
