Accountancy at Providence College

Program Overview

Success preparing graduates for national case competitions, the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam, and jobs with the “Big 4” accounting firms, as well as many regional and local firms, brings national recognition to the Accountancy program, which is a rigorous major that prepares students for a demanding profession. Our curriculum covers all of the major topics covered on the CPA exam, which many students take and pass after graduation. We also offer many co-curricular and experiential activities to enhance the educational experience of our students. What sets our Accountancy students apart is an ability to think broadly about accounting and its relationship to society, and to think beyond the “bottom line” about the implications of their decisions.
