Certificate in Accountancy
Perhaps your bachelor degree was in a different field, but you're skilled with numbers. You'd like to learn about recent accounting trends or financial statements. Then again, maybe you'd like to enhance your credentials in order to further your career.

This Western International University (West) Certificate is designed to prepare students from any discipline for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. However, the certificate is also a valuable professional credential for students who do not wish to take the CPA exam. The West Certificate requires 54 credits in accounting and related areas. Students may transfer any or all prerequisites as well as a maximum of 24 credits in accounting and related course requirements for the West Certificate.

Each state sets forth standards required to be eligible to take the CPA exam and apply for licensure or certification as a CPA. The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) certification requires membership in the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) as well as education, work experience, and examination requirements.  While Western International University (West) programs are designed with consideration for the standards proposed by the National Association of State Boards of Accounting (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the IMA, Western International University cannot assure that successful graduates will meet their states' or IMA's specific eligibility requirements to take the CPA or CMA exams or apply for licensure or certification as a CPA or CMA. Applicants should check with their appropriate state organization and/or the IMA to determine if the West program, combined with their undergraduate degree, work experience, and any other specific criteria, meets examination and licensing eligibility requirements for the CPA and/or CMA designations. State and/or IMA requirements may vary from the time of admission to program completion. There is no assurance at the time of program completion that the specific jurisdiction's requirements will be consistent with the requirements at the time of admission.
