Gain knowledge for a successful future in accounting
Mercer’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Accounting provides students with the strong academic foundation necessary for a successful career in the accounting profession—whether in public accounting firms, government, corporations, or as an independent certified public accountant (CPA).
During the program, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in real-world accounting settings. Graduates of Mercer’s BBA in Accounting program can choose to continue their study of accounting at the graduate level through Mercer’s Master of Accountancy degree, which prepares individuals to sit for the CPA exam.
