Program Description:

Babson’s Certificate in Advanced Accounting provides a unique option for you to prepare for the CPA exam and for your career.

This program gives you the opportunity to fulfill the 150-credit-hour education requirement for the Massachusetts CPA exam without having to commit to a full 30-credit degree program. Students in this certificate program can complete the 18 credits in just one summer.

The Certificate in Advanced Accounting is designed to give you the depth of knowledge you need to pursue the CPA exam and the professional mindset that will set you apart in your career. Throughout your coursework, you will gain key accounting knowledge while also building in depth analysis, communication, and entrepreneurial skills that employers are seeking.

Students who earn the Certificate in Advanced Accounting may choose to return to Babson and apply the credits earned as part of the certificate program to a Babson MSA degree or a Babson MBA degree. Contact Graduate Admissions​ for more information.
