The certificate in accounting online from Belhaven University is an opportunity for students to enter the accounting profession. There is a high demand in the job market for persons with accounting degrees. There are not enough accounting graduates to supply the demand, so the increasing competition to hire them means that salaries are rising. Belhaven’s flexible online accounting certificate courses bring the classroom to life and provides a quality learning experience so you can succeed in your education and career.
Because of the high demand for accountants, some Belhaven accounting students are able to secure accounting jobs or internships while they are still students and get on-the-job training and experience. An online accounting certificate from Belhaven can open up career opportunities like public, tax, government, corporate, managerial, cost and not-for-profit accounting as well as auditing and internal auditing.
Students completing the online accounting certificate program will have taken all courses required to qualify to take the CPA exam in Mississippi. Since certificate students already hold a bachelor’s degree in another major, they should also have enough credits to satisfy the 150-hour requirement. Students planning to take the CPA exam in other states must check with that state’s board of public accountancy to ensure they will qualify.
