According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for accountants remains high. Accountants in the United States earn nearly double the median wage of all occupations nationwide and can expect above-average job growth projections. RIC’s accounting program prepares you for entry-level positions, such as external auditor, tax accountant, corporate accountant or management accountant. Many of our students choose to become certified public accountants (CPAs) – the gold standard in the accounting profession. Depending on the courses you take in the program, the Accounting Department will prepare you for the CPA exam.
