Why study Accountancy?
UC Blue Ash College (UCBA) offers professional certificates for students who have already earned a bachelor's degree and who wish to acquire additional skills and knowledge. Professional certificate programs generally consist of the technical portion of the college's two-year, career-oriented programs.
The professional certificate program in accountancy is designed to provide students with a general knowledge of accounting.
This program is open to students who have already completed a Baccalaureate degree (any major). Additional information about admission to UCBA is available on the college’s admissions web site: https://www.ucblueash.edu/admissions/index.html
Accounting majors need people skills, the ability to communicate well -- both verbally and in writing -- and a strong quantitative background.
Accountancy students can go on to positions in business, industry, public practice, and government. Job opportunities are numerous, because accountants are needed in such a wide spectrum of organizations. Examples of the job opportunities available to you include: internal auditor, general accountant, cost accountant, government accountant, nonprofit organization accountant, and inventory control supervisor. Many students use this program as a bridge to an MS in accounting program, or as part of a plan to meet the qualifications to sit for the CPA examination. Information about qualifying for the CPA examination is available at http://acc.ohio.gov/.
This program is the equivalent of a minor in accounting for those who have previously completed a baccalaureate degree.
The accountancy program at UC Blue Ash College (UCBA) is designed for students who wish to explore a new career field at a campus with smaller class sizes and individual attention from well-qualified faculty. The regional campus is conveniently located and has lower fees for tuition, technology, student life, and parking.
The program allows for maximum flexibility, with courses offered days and evenings. Tutoring labs in study skills, writing, and math are available at no additional cost for students needing extra help.
To qualify for a degree or certificate, you must fulfill the requirements of the program from which you expect to graduate and must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. It is your responsibility to take the courses necessary for graduation and to meet the UC residency requirements.
You must complete an Online Degree Application, usually the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor for specific information well in advance of your final semester.
