You’ve decided to become a Certified Public Accountant, but you’re not sure how to go about getting there. Here are a couple of options to consider if you are set on pursuing this career path:

  1. Take the required accounting coursework for CPA exam eligibility as a non-degree-seeking student. Available at some colleges and universities, a non-degree-seeking option may be a good fit if you are already working and have built a professional network. This approach would help you meet the requirements for the CPA exam and may provide more choices in course delivery, such as evening, weekend or online classes.
  2.  Study a graduate degree in accounting, such as the Texas McCombs MPA. This is a great option if you are seeking employment opportunities, want to expand your professional network and would like to enroll as a full-time student. The benefits of a structured master’s degree program include dedicated career services, connections with students and alumni, networking opportunities with employers and the addition of a higher-level degree to your credentials. Most graduate accounting programs require specific pre-enrollment courses. The Texas McCombs MPA helps you to make an easy transition to a new career by requiring only five pre-enrollment requirements, which can be completed at a local community college.
