The accounting program is one of our most established and respected within the business discipline. It is a computer-based program in which the latest accounting theory and real-world practice receive equal emphasis as applied to both financial and managerial accounting issues. If you’re looking to enter the job market upon graduation or if you’re considering an advanced degree, this major is tailor made for you.
A laptop computer is recommended, but not required, for students entering the accounting program.
Alfred State accounting graduates may enter directly into either the business administration BBA, financial planning BBA, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, or technology management BBA degree program.
Students may transfer directly into one of our own BBA degree programs or to another college. Students are encouraged to make their intentions known to their academic adviser during their freshman year. Through the careful use of elective courses, students can realize excellent transfer credit.
The Business Department has established many formal articulation agreements with local four-year institutions, although graduates may transfer to colleges virtually anywhere. Historically, accounting graduates have done very well after leaving Alfred State, whether they enter the workforce or transfer to an advanced program.
Employment and transfer rate of 100 percent – 13 percent are employed; 87 percent continued their education.
